According to a cabinet statement released on Thursday, the decision applies to workers at all ministries, government bodies, public institutions, local administrative bodies, public sector companies, public business sector companies, in addition to the private sector.

However, schools and universities exams will run as scheduled, the decree read.

Thousands of thanaweya amma (high school grade 12) students are currently taking their exams, while university students are also doing their end-of-term exams.

The holiday marks the day in 2013 when millions of Egyptians took to the street to demand that then-President Mohamed Morsi leave office.
