People: Egypt deputy resigns; HKMA shuffles pack


Egypt: Egyptian central bank deputy governor Lobna Helal has resigned her post, less than a week after her boss, Farouk El-Okdah, announced he is to step down.

Helal was appointed to a four-year term as one of two deputy governors when El-Okdah started his third term at the head of the bank in 2011.

Helal, who will see out the rest of January in her post, was the first female deputy governor of the Central Bank of Egypt. El-Okdah is to be replaced by Hisham Ramez, who served as deputy governor
