CAIRO - Interim President Adly Mansour on Monday accepted the resignation of the Egyptian government, the Presidency said.

In a statement, the Presidency thanked Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi and his government members for their efforts during what it described as a "very critical stage".

In a televised speech on Monday, al-Beblawi said that he had tendered his government resignation.

Al-Beblawi was named interim prime minister on July 9, only six days after the army ousted elected president Mohamed Morsi and installed Mansour as interim president.
