On Saturday, the Egyptian Parliament approved a Cabinet change involving 13 ministers.
One day after, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi called for an extraordinary assembly session to adopt the amendments.
The ministers of tourism, higher education, trade and industry, water and irrigation, emigration, and civil aviation were included in the reshuffle.
Sisi stated that the reshuffle is intended to “revitalize government performance on major domestic and international issues to defend state interests and services given to Egyptian citizens.”
This is the fifth Cabinet reshuffle since 2018. The most recent cabinet shuffle occurred in December 2019.
