Egypt's interim Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi on Thursday accepted a resignation submitted earlier by deputy prime minister and minister of international cooperation Ziad Bahaa Eddin.
The premier asked Planning Minister Ashraf al-Arabi to temporarily take over Bahaa Eddin's responsibilities, a cabinet statement said.
Bahaa Eddin said last Monday that he submitted his resignation to the prime minister, adding that he would feel more comfortable going back to his political party and resuming his legal profession.
The interim government was sworn in on July 16, 2013, two weeks after the ouster of elected president Mohamed Morsi by the country's military following mass protests against his rule.Last Mod: 31 Ocak 2014, 09:56
