Egypt’s minister resigns in protest against Mursi
Johannesburg: An Egyptian Cabinet member has submitted his resignation, saying he disagreed with the slow pace of reform by the Mursi-led government.
It was the second resignation in Egypt`s Cabinet since Communications Minister Hany Mahmoud quit citing his ‘inability to adapt to the government`s working culture’.
Mohamed Mahsoub, a member of a centrist party, which has recently backed Mursi, said he was resigning from his post as Minister for Parliamentary Affairs because he believed the government needed to change more radically, News24 reports.
“I have reached a clear conclusion that a lot of the policies and efforts contradict with my personal beliefs,” Mahsoub said in a resignation letter published on his Wasat Party`s Facebook page.
“I don`t see them as representative of our people`s aspirations,” he added.
According to the report, the minister also said that Egypt needed ‘radically different policies and methods’.
