Government Sources Say Egypt to Stage Limited Cabinet Reshuffle
A limited change to Egypt’s interim government to be carried out soon will include three or four ministers, a source from the government of Dr. Essam Sharaf said.
It includes Minister of Communication and Information Technology Dr. Majed Othman on accusations of running an information center for the benefit of the former ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) and Minister of International Cooperation Fayza Abul Naga on wasting billions of loans and grants from which Egypt has not benefited.
The reshuffle in Prime Minister Essam Sharaf’s cabinet would "include Zahi Hawass, Egypt’s Minister for Antiquities who has been sentenced to a year in jail after he refused to implement a court decision in a land dispute, sources added.
The sources indicated that Dr. Essam Sharaf considered dissolving all local councils and will suffice to keep heads until a decree has been issued on dissolving the local councils and holding free elections.
