font size    

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak issued a presidential decree on Sunday, in which a new ministerial post was set up and two ministers were changed, the official MENA news agency reported.

According to MENA, the new ministerial post was called State Minister for Economic Development, which would be led by Othman Mohamed Othman, who was former Minister of Local Development and Planning.

As to the two changed ministers, Mohamed Abdel-Salam Mahgoub, governor of the Mediterranean port city Alexandria, replaced Othman as Minister of Local Development and Planning.

Mamdouh Mohieddin Marai, who was head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, was appointed as new Minister of Justice.

Former Justice Minister Mahmoud Abu el-Leil handed in his resignation to Mubarak 10 days ago and was accepted, said MENA.

MENA, however, neither gave the reason behind el-Leil's resignation nor the reason behind the reshuffling of the Egyptian cabinet.

Also in the decree, Mubarak appointed Adel Labib as new governor of Alexandria, Mohamed Shaarawi as governor of Beheira in the Nile River Delta, and Mohsen al-Noamani Hafez as governor of Sohag in south Egypt.

New ministers and governors were due to be sworn in before Mubarak on Monday, said MENA, adding that this was the first minor cabinet reshuffle in Prime Minister Ahmed Nazef's cabinet, which was sworn in on Dec. 31 of 2005.
