Egypt cabinet to stay for transition period
Cairo, February 13, 2011
Egypt's cabinet, appointed when Hosni Mubarak was still in office, will not undergo a major reshuffle and will stay to oversee a political transformation in the coming months, the cabinet spokesman said.
"The shape of the government will stay until the process of transformation is done in a few months, then a new government will be appointed based on the democratic principles in place," the spokesman told Reuters, adding that it was possible some portfolios could change hands in that period.
"The main task of this government is to restore security and order and also start the economic process, and to take care of day-to-day life," he said. - Reuters
