CAIRO: Cabinet spokesperson Hosam Al-Qauesh announced Saturday that Egypt will end daylight savings time starting Thursday, Sept. 25.

He added in statements reported by Al-Masry Al-Youm that clocks should be set back 60 minutes at midnight Thursday-Friday.

Daylight savings time in Egypt was used before the January 25 Revolution, but during interim Prime Minister Essam Sharaf’s Cabinet following the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, its use was ended.

Last May, the government decided to negate the Sharaf decision and go back to daylight savings time, except during Ramadan.
