Egyptian PM Mehleb sworn in

Ibrahim Mehleb will lead the new Egyptian gov’t after elections saw former army chief Abdel Fattah Al Sisi voted President

Egyptian Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb was sworn in as head of a new government on Tuesday, in a ceremony overseen by President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi.

Mehleb's cabinet, including newly appointed Investment Minister Ashraf Salman and International Cooperation Minister Naglaa El Ahwany, was due to take the oath shortly afterwards.

Most other key economic and security ministers kept their jobs in Mehleb's limited reshuffle, which came after the president re-appointed the premier last week following his presidential inauguration.
