New Faces, New Vision: Inside Egypt’s Government Reshuffle

About a month ago, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi reappointed PM Madbouly to create a new government, a government tasked with lowering inflation, regulating markets, and increasing local and foreign investment. The new cabinet will be sworn in today, and so with that, let us take a closer look at its reshuffle:

The New Ministers

There is currently a list of 17 prospective ministers who could join Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly’s new cabinet. Badr Abdelatty, who was formerly Egypt’s ambassador to the European Union, will now take on the role of Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigration.

In the world of finance, Ahmed Kouchouk, former Deputy Minister of Finance for Fiscal Policies and Institutional Reform, will assume the new role of Minister of Finance. Then, for transportation, Kamel Al-Wazir will become Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Transport and Industry.

Sherif Farouk will take on the role of Minister of Supply and Internal Trade, replacing Ali Moselhi, and Karim Badawi will become the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, replacing Tarek El-Molla.

One of the most important industries in Egypt is tourism and taking on the role of Minister of Tourism and Antiquities will be Sherif Fathy.

The New & Merged Ministries

Along with the new ministers, many of the Egyptian ministries will take on a new identity through mergers. The Ministry of Emigration and Expatriate Affairs will be merged with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Ministry of Transport will become The Ministry of Transport and Industry.


Along with that, the Trade Ministry will include an investment portfolio, turning into the Ministry of Trade and Investment. One of the new ministries will be the Ministry of International Cooperation and Planning, which was created by merging the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development with the Ministry of International Cooperation. All of these will be run by Rania Al-Mashat.

Along with the ministerial changes, governors of Cairo, Alexandria, and Luxor will also be replaced. More is yet to come.
