Egypt's foreign minister resigns following anti-Morsi rallie

Post by DJKeefy » Tue Jul 02, 2013 3:11 am

Egypt's foreign minister resigns following anti-Morsi rallies.

Mohamed Kamel Amr, Egypt's minister for foreign affairs, becomes the fifth minister to resign following mass rallies against President Mohamed Morsi’s rule.

Egypt’s Foreign Minister Moahmed Kamel Amr has stepped down in the early hours on Tuesday, Ahram Arabic news website reported.

Amr reportedly submitted his resignation in response to the ongoinbg political strife in Egypt that pits President Mohamed Morsi against liberal-minded opposition and many ordinary Egyptians frustrated by the country’s economic woes.

Four other members of the Egyptian cabinet have already resigned on Monday in protest at Morsi's failure to respond to nationwide demonstrations against his rule.

The ministers of parliamentary affairs, tourism, environment and communication tendered their resignations to Prime Minister Hisham Qandil. However, he is yet to respond to the move.

Amr was appointed as Egypt’s foreign minister in July 2011 when the country was ruled by the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) during a tumultuous transition to democracy after autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak was toppled.

He retained the post after Morsi became Egypt’s first freely elected president in June 2012, surviving two cabinet reshuffles.
