President Mursi has completed 100 days in office as Egypt's first democratically elected leader. Has he started to make a difference? Will a more just and equal society begin to emerge? How much free speech does the system allow? Democracy has had a poor start in Egypt, according to an audience at the New Arab Debates - a free speech forum, founded in the wake of last year's political turmoil.
