Egypt\’s interim prime minister Hazem el-Beblawi says his Cabinet has resigned.
He announced the development in a televised address Monday, but did not specify a reason.
The military-backed interim government has been running Egypt since the army ousted president Mohamed Morsi last July.
Egypt plans to hold a presidential election in April followed by a vote for a new parliament, as part of its post-Morsi transition plan.
Army chief Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has yet to declare he is running for president, but many observers believe he is both likely to run and enjoy broad support.
