Shock as Interim Prime Minister and Government Resigns

In a move that has taken many by surprise Egypt’s interim Prime Minister Hazem Beblawi on Monday February 24, announced the resignation of his government, reports CISA.

In a televised broadcast Mr Beblawi said: “Today the cabinet took a decision to offer its resignation to the president of the republic,” adding that the decision was taken “in light of the current situation the country is going through”.

Mr Beblawi who was appointed interim Prime Minister last year in July by interim President Adly Mansour after the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi and tasked with running the government’s affairs until the election however did not provide a specific reason for the cabinet’s resignation.

On the current problems ailing the country, Mr Beblawi said no government in the world could have fulfilled all the demands of its people in such a short period of time and called for unity. “The country is facing huge dangers. It is time we stood together to protect it and help it get out of this narrow tunnel,” he said.

In recent times Egypt has witnessed a rise in the number strikes, including one by public sector workers and rubbish collectors and Mr Beblawi said: “This is neither the time for demands by public workers nor the time for personal interests, but the time for us to put our country’s interests above all others.”

The resignation comes at a time when the country is preparing for a presidential election in the next two months and analysts believe this paves the way for Army Chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to declare his candidacy for president. “This (government resignation) was done as a step that was needed ahead of Sisi’s announcement that he will run for president,” an Egyptian official said.

Al-Sisi lead the Armed Forces in ousting Islamist and Egypt’s first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi, following mass protests against Morsi and his government leading to the bloodiest political crisis in modern Egyptian history according to observers. Security forces reportedly killed more than 1,000 of Brotherhood supporters and jailed thousands, and top leaders were put on trial.

Al-Sisi was subsequently appointed as First Deputy Prime Minister, while remaining Minister of Defense and for him (Sisi) to run for president, he would first need to leave his two posts. On January 14 and 15 Egypt held a successful constitutional referendum that was backed by 98.1% of people who voted.
