The cabinet of incumbent Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri has failed to offer a successful plan to get through the transitional period, but removing it is not a realistic political option, liberal MP Amr Hamzawy said Monday.
It is clear that Parliament has the ability and the authority to withdraw confidence from the government, Hamzawy said during a People's Assembly session on Monday.
But the real question is how politically expedient the move would be in the current situation, he added.
'Do we really need a confidence vote on the government? Do we want to withdraw confidence now?' Hamzawy asked, addressing other MPs.
Hamzawy also noted that Egypt is in a political gridlock due to disagreements over the formation of the Constituent Assembly, which is tasked with drafting the new constitution.
He called for reconsidering the formation through the Parliament.
