Egypt's cabinet has no intention of increasing the price of metro tickets, said Minister of Transportation Hani Dahi one week after saying the government was studying a new pricing mechanism.
"Only the prime minister (Ibrahim Mahlab) is entitled to make that decision, not the Ministry of Transportation, as some say," Dahi was quoted as saying by Al-Ahram's Arabic news website.

"The government has no intention to raise the Metro fare."

Dahi also strenuously denied the government's intention to increase the price from LE1 ($0.13) to LE25 ($3.5), saying this rumour was an attempt to "destabilise the country."
