Egypt Reshuffles Its Government, Appoints 4 New Ministers

Sunday, 14 Jan 2018 12:38 PM

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt's president has sworn in four new cabinet ministers in a limited government reshuffle.

President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi swore in the new ministers of culture, tourism, local development and business just hours after parliament approved their appointment on Sunday.

Einas Abdel-Dayem, a career flute player who received her education in France and is currently in charge of the Cairo Opera House, was named Culture Minister. Another woman, U.S.-educated economist Rania al-Mashat, takes over the tourism portfolio, a key job at a time when Egypt is struggling to revive the lucrative sector decimated by years of turmoil following a popular uprising in 2011.

Khaled Badawi was named Business Minister. Abu Bakr el-Gindy took the local development portfolio.
