Egypt’s new finance minister Hazem el-Beblawi told RFI on Sunday that protesters in Tahrir Square would be “at least partially satisfied” with the government’s cabinet reshuffle. Egypt’s Prime Minister Essam Sharaf has handed a list of proposed ministers to the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces for approval. The new cabinet is expected to be unveiled on Monday.
“The new cabinet reflects more the feeling on the street than the previous one, where some names, rightly or wrongly, were associated with the past regime,” says Beblawi.
Beblawi replaces Samir Radwan who was appointed shortly before toppled president Hosni Mubarak left.
