CAIRO, April 24 (UPI) -- Fouad Gadallah, legal adviser to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, has resigned, the 11th presidential aide to leave the government, officials said.

Gadallah said the "lack of vision in managing the state and [the president's] support for the Qandil Cabinet despite the fact it has failed politically, economically and in terms of security" prompted the action, a source told al-Masry al-Youm Tuesday.

Gadallah told the newspaper Morsi consults the Muslim Brotherhood's Guidance Bureau for some decisions. The bureau appoints officials to posts in the government with the president making the final decision, he said.

He also called for reforms to be made in the country's judiciary as well as the armed forces.

Gadallah said he objects to a single ruling party running the country during the transition period, Ahram Online said.
