At the presidential palace in New Alamein city on Sunday, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi saw the swearing-in of Egypt’s 13 new ministers in the government of Mostafa Madbouly, the prime minister since 2018.
The ministries for irrigation, education, health, higher education, emigration, tourism, trade and industry, civil aviation, manpower, culture, local development, public business sector, and military production were among those authorised by the parliament at an extraordinary session on Saturday.
Other important portfolios, such as those for foreign affairs, power, agriculture, defense, interior, finance, supply, planning, environment, telecommunications, social cohesion, transport, housing, petroleum, youth, and international cooperation, stayed the same.
The third and second significant overhaul of Madbouly’s administration, following the replacement of 10 ministers in December 2019, took place on Saturday. After previous PM Sherif Ismail, Mabdouly, who was the housing minister at the time, was given the task of assembling the cabinet.
“The president urged the new ministers to show impartiality, objectivity and dedication, consolidate the principle of efficiency, and to make the utmost effort as a consistent management approach to advance the nation’s interest in the first place,” Presidential Spokesman Bassam Rady said in a statement today.
El-Sisi added in a meeting with the new ministers that this is because of the enormous responsibility those ministers carry as a result of global changes that have affected the entire world, including Egypt, and imposed numerous challenges that demand continuous diligent work with a strong and tireless will.
In order to offer citizens the greatest services possible within the purview of each ministry, the president emphasized to the ministers the value of routine communication with them.
Additionally, he urged the people to be made more aware of the state’s domestic, regional, and international difficulties as well as the initiatives, successes, and current advances occurring as part of the all-encompassing progress Egypt has experienced across its governorates.
According to the statement, El-Sisi asked the ministers to fully comprehend the resources and authority at their disposal through their respective ministries, organizations, and agencies.
The president reaffirmed the significance of effectively managing these resources in order to maximize results and create working procedures that would provide the greatest benefits and returns.
In order for the planned work to be successful and become a reality on the ground, El-Sisi also urged the ministers to pay particular attention to the effectiveness of the implementation mechanisms.
