The PM'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.
