PM resigns 3 days after Sisi sworn in

(MENAFN) Three days after President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi was sworn in for a second, four-year term in office, Egypt's prime minister has submitted his government's resignation.

The move by Prime Minister Shereef Ismail appeared to be in keeping with political tradition that the government should resign at the start of a new presidential term.

However, el-Sissi has the prerogative to use the opportunity to reshuffle the Cabinet.

El-Sissi and Sherif are known to enjoy a close working relationship, with the general-turned-president often publicly praising his prime minister.
