CAIRO – 24 June 2022: Egypt’s Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly has announced Thursday 30 June as a paid holiday for the public and private employees on the anniversary of the 2013 revolution.

The decision will apply to workers at ministries, government institutions, public authorities, local administration units, public sector companies, public business sector companies, and the private sector.

Exams, however, will be held as scheduled, the government said.

The 2013 revolution on 30 June marks the day when millions of protesters rushed to streets to protest against the Muslim Brotherhood-led government and then-President Mohamed Morsi.

The June revolution led to the ousting of Morsi and put an end to the one-year Muslim Brotherhood ruling in what has been seen as a victory for people’s will.

The June revolution came only two years after the 25 January Revolution in 2011, which forced late Former President Hosni Mubarak to leave office after 30 years as president and paved the way for the country’s first democratic presidential elections.
