It would appear that this change has not been confirmed yet.
The Arabic version of the original announcement would appear to state that legislation action is still to be taken:http://gate.ahram.org.eg/News/953556.aspx
Additionally, several news outlets are reporting that a lawsuit has been filed in the administrative courts:

Several of our users have reported on new DST plans in Egypt, which is confirmed by
several sources that all say Egypt will have DST from July 7 until the end of October.
Unfortunately, "end of October" is very vague, but we at timeanddate.com<http://timeanddate.com> would assume a rule like this for it, based on their historic end dates:
Rule Egypt 2016 max - Oct lastThu 23:00s 0 -
We also assume it will start at the end of July 7 (midnight between Thursday and Friday).
I found it interesting that EgyptAir seems to have assumed DST to start in April (like it previously did in 2010), and therefore this obviously causes problems with the schedules:
