Egypt's chief public prosecutor Thursday retracted his resignation, days after offering to step down following protests by prosecutors and judges against his appointment by President Mohamed Morsi.
Taalat Ibrahim Abdallah, who offered his resignation earlier this week, asked to be allowed to remain on in his position, the official MENA news agency reported. The justice minister is considering his request.
Morsi appointed Abdallah last month in one of number of decisions that sidelined judges, sparking a judicial strike and mass rallies by opposition.
One of those decisions was to sack previous prosecutor general Abdel Meguid Mahmud. It followed criticisms by the President's supporters over Mahmud's failure to secure convictions of more members of the ousted regime of Hosni Mubarak.
