Calls for nationwide civil disobedience have not affected navigation in the Suez Canal, said a senior official from the Suez Canal Authority on Saturday.
He said that the total number of ships scheduled to pass through the Canal on Saturday is 49, with a net load of 74.2 tons.
Manakhli also said employees at the Suez Canal Authority refused to take part in the day of civil disobedience, which marks the first anniversary of Hosni Mubarak's ouster and calls for an end to military rule, due to the negative impact it would have on the country.
Suez Canal is a vital source of foreign currency for Egypt, along with tourism, oil and gas exports, and remittances from Egyptians living abroad.
Manakhli said that here have been tougher times for the canal, particularly in the period just after the revolution, adding that the number of vessels using the canal is higher than in previous years.
On Thursday, the government said Suez Canal revenue rose 7 percent in the year to January.
Revenue in December 2011 was $443.7 million.
