CAIRO, July 27 (UPI) -- New President Mohamed Morsi should arrange trash removal instead of calling on Egyptians to engage in do-it-yourself street cleaning, opponents said Friday.

In a statement, the Socialist Popular Alliance Party said that the poor in Egypt suffer from other problems, including cuts in supplies of electricity and water, Egypt Independent reported.

"The president suggests that the people bear the burden of the Cabinet and executive office's failure to carry out their duties," the party said. "This burden will mostly be endured by residents of lower class areas which suffer from the most negligence."
