Fed up with ‘government culture,’ communications minister steps down

Communications and Information Technology Minister Hany Mahmoud has announced that he submitted his resignation Tuesday and Prime Minister Hesham Qandil accepted it.  

“After 30 years of working at international companies, I couldn’t cope with government culture, especially under the current circumstances. Therefore, I submitted my resignation more than a month ago.” Mahmoud posted on his Facebook account. “I will continue working until a new minister is selected.”

“I’d like to thank Hesham Qandil for understanding the reasons for my resignation,” he added, wishing the best for the ministry.

“I will serve the country, but from outside the governmental framework,” he said. “I don’t regret accepting the ministerial position, and I was honored to attempt it. I took the post for Egypt and I left it for Egypt.
