Parliament Blocked DST

Earlier this year, the government announced that DST would return to Egypt later this week. However, the government has accepted the Egyptian parliament’s protest vote against the clock change last week.

On Monday, July 4, 2016, the government announced that Egypt will not reintroduce Daylight Saving Time at the end of this week after all.

Initially, Egyptians were scheduled to set their clocks forward 1 hour at midnight between Thursday, July 7 and Friday, July 8, 2016. However, some sources also stated July 5, 2016 as the date to turn clocks forward. As it now stands, there will be no clock change.

Egypt has a long track record for making decisions about Daylight Saving Time on very short notice.
