Egypt’s New Cabinet Sworn In

The first cabinet under Egypt’s new President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi was sworn in on Tuesday morning, headed by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab.

The new government — the third since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July of last year — retains 21 existing ministers, one of whom will hold a new portfolio, and introduces 13 new ones.

Headed by the president and the premier, the cabinet held its first meeting immediately after taking oath.
