An adviser to President Mohamed Mursi has submitted his resignation in protest at the running of the state and the “failure” of the government, Egyptian media announced on Tuesday.
“Mohamed Fuad Gadallah, presidential adviser on judicial affairs, is resigning,” the public television channel Nile News said.
“The presidency is studying the resignation submitted by Mohamed Fuad Gadallah to the president of the republic on Monday,” state news agency MENA said, citing a spokesman for Mursi.
Independent daily Al-Masri al-Yom, which published the resignation letter, said Gadallah was protesting against “the absence of any clear vision for running the state” and over the government’s “political, economic and security failure.”
