Baku, September 12, AZERTAC

Egypt`s government has resigned and the country`s oil minister has been asked to form a new cabinet within a week, the office of President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has said, according to the BBC News.

No official reason was given for the government`s resignation.

However, a senior source was quoted as saying the aim was to reshuffle the cabinet following a corruption scandal.

Last Monday, Egypt`s agriculture minister was arrested in connection with the corruption inquiry.

In a statement, the presidency said Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab had delivered the government`s resignation to President Sisi who accepted it.
