Egypt`s Army rulers rejected the resignation of Deputy PM, who had cited health problems.

Cairo: Egypt`s Army rulers rejected the resignation of Deputy Prime Minister Yehia el-Gamal, who had cited health problems, the government said on Wednesday.

Gamal was appointed in February shortly after a popular uprising ousted President Hosni Mubarak, who was replaced by a military council until elections can be held.

A law professor, Gamal was a leader of an opposition coalition called the National Association for Change, founded by Egyptian activist and presidential candidate Mohamed ElBaradei.
The Prime Minister`s media adviser Ahmed el-Seman told reporters that the military council had rejected Gamal`s resignation. He gave no explanation for the decision.
