CAIRO Dec 22 (Reuters) - Egypt's vice president, Mahmoud Mekky, has resigned from his post, a presidential source said on Saturday, without giving any reason.

The source said the presidential spokesman would issue a statement shortly. Mekky took a leading role in hosting "national unity" talks called by President Mohamed Mursi, although the main opposition politicians stayed away.
