Egypt to reapply Daylight Saving Time
Cairo: Egypt will put its clock forward by an hour from midnight tonight to readjust to Daylight Saving Time (DST), the Egyptian cabinet announced.
Starting at 11:59 pm local time, the clock will go an hour forward to readjust to DST, which was applied in late May and then cancelled during the holy month of Ramadan to shorten the fasting period of Muslims.
The reintroduction of summer time is under the pretext that it would save energy.
The DST was first adopted in Egypt in 1988 as a way to reduce energy consumption.
In Egypt, standard time is GMT (UTC)+2. DST Time is GMT+3.
