Egyptian Cabinet resigns so Sadat can make shift

Egyptian Prime Minister Mustafa Khalil submitted his resignation and that of his Cabinet Monday to allow President Anwar Sadat to form a new government. Mr. Khalil told reporters after a one-hour meeting that his government submitted its resignation to Mr. Sadat "to allow him to make new changes, which he is going to declare on Wednesday." He added that he would be ready to serve in any position President Sadat might ask him to fill.

Earlier Monday, a group of 54 Prominent Egyptians, including two former vice-presidents and five former Cabinet ministers, called for a more representative system of government in Egypt, criticizing what they described as ad hoc individual decisions.
