Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil resigned on Monday, addressing the resignation letter to ousted President Mohammad Morsi and decrying the military coup against him, reported the Turkish news agency Anadolu.
“I prepared this resignation to present it to his excellence President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday,” Qandil said in a statement accompanying his resignation letter.
The prime minister said he had tried to steer his government since the ouster of Morsi until the formation of a new government.
“But as it became practically impossible to work in view of the bloodshed, I decided to activate resignation at once,” he said, according to Anadolu.
Qandil, who was appointed by Morsi last July, was likely on his way out anyway, as the country’s interim leadership has already been working on naming his replacement.
Mohamed ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), was tipped to become the new prime minister but his candidacy was dropped on Saturday after the Salafist Al-Nour party voiced objection.
On Sunday, the role was offered to Ziad Bahaa El-Din, founding member of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party, but the Salafist party rejected this nomination as well.
