After only 1 month in office,Mr.Mohamed Abd El Fatah resigned from his post as the Secretary General of the supreme council of Antiquities. His resignation came after 2 days that SCA building in Zamalek was closed because of the protesting. He said that he sympathises with the demands but his hands are tight.
In the first move this afternoon, the heads of the different departments in the Supreme Council held an emergency meeting and decided to give permanent job to the temporary employers in the SCA which was the main issue in the past few months. Dr. Atef Abu ElDahab “The head of the Egyptian antiquities department” said “The decision was made to give 4065 temporary employers the permanent jobs on the Supreme council responsibility and the decision will be affective starting tomorrow. The ministry of Finance withdrew this decision before as there was a lack in the budget.”
So what’s next now for the Supreme Council of Antiquities? Will Dr. Zahi Hawass be back Again? Who will be in office and for how long?
No one has an answer but only time will tell.... So hang on there and follow the SCA drama.
