Independence or National Days are the most important day for a country to celebrate as a national holiday. The majority of the countries on earth became independent after 1800 and many more following World War II when European powers granted independence to their colonial holdings, especially Africa. Egypt was declared independent on 28 February 1922 from under the British rule and it acquired full sovereignty following World War II.
The British government announced their independence without any discussion with representatives from Egypt, leaving the details on 4 issues, of the communications security of British occupation in Egypt, Egypt's defense, foreign affairs of Egypt, minority races' protection, and the state of Sudan which were to be ironed out later. On this day, Sultan Ahmad Fuad became King Fuad I and Faruk, Fuad's son, became his heir. A new constitution was formed in April, including a new law that introduced parliamentary elections. By 1923, there were 3 main political powers in Egypt.
