CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's prosecutor general has submitted his resignation, less than a month after he was swiftly sworn in by the president.
If his resignation is accepted, it will be a blow to Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, who has been engaged in a power struggle with the judiciary since late last month.
It's part of the political turmoil that has been sweeping Egypt.
Egypt's official MENA news agency carried excerpts of the resignation letter submitted by Talaat Abdullah on Monday.
Hundreds of public prosecutors staged a sit-in outside Abdullah's office in Cairo Monday, demanding he resign. They said that the president's appointment of Abdullah was improper. They said the Supreme Judicial Council should have been the one to nominate him, in order to ensure a separation of powers.
