CAIRO: Parliamentarian Serry Siam, who was appointed by President Abdel Fatah Al Sisi, has submitted his resignation to Egypt’s House of Representatives Monday, Youm7 reported.
“I was supposed to submit a resignation request to the parliament speaker in person but I have submitted it to the secretariat-general of the parliament and it is irreversible,” Siam was quoted by Youm7.
However, Siam, who was one of 28 public figures appointed to Egypt’s House of Representatives by Sisi, did not mention the reason behind his surprising resignation.
During the procedural session of Egypt’s newly elected parliament, Siam verbally clashed of the parliament speaker Ali Abdel Aal over the way parliament members should be nominated for the deputy speaker post.
Members of the secretariat bureau of the parliament are scheduled to hold a meeting Tuesday to discuss Siam’s resignation, according to Youm7.
Siam has previously served as the head of Egypt’s Court of Cassation and the Supreme Judicial Council.
