Egypt’s Former PM Ganzouri Dies at 88


Egypt’s former Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri, who served in the position for two times, died on Wednesday at the age of 88, state-run Ahram website reported.

He passed away at the Air Force Hospital after a long battle with illness, the report added.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi mourned Ganzouri as “a unique statesman who has been loyal to Egypt, its people, and soil.’’

Ganzouri was a man of wise vision, successful and special leading capabilities who presented a lot for the country in the political and economic fields, Sisi posted at his official Facebook page.

As an official who sided with the poor and the low-income, Ganzouri served also as Minister of Planning and International Cooperation.

Ganzouri served as prime minister between 1996 and 1999 under the ousted President Hosni Mubarak, and head of a national salvation government in 2011 following the uprising that toppled Mubarak. He was appointed as advisor to the president for economic affairs in 2013.
