Egypt’s interim prime minister Hazem el-Beblawi announced Monday the resignation of his Cabinet, a surprise move that could be designed in part to pave the way for the nation’s military chief to leave his defense minister’s post to run for president. El-Beblawi has often been derided in the media for his perceived indecisiveness and inability to introduce effective remedies to the country’s economic woes.
