Egypt's Prime Minister Announces Cabinet Reshuffle

Muslim Brotherhood enjoying more representation


Egypt has announced a cabinet reshuffle that removes two ministers closely involved in talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and increases the representation of President Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood in the government. 

The opposition had been demanding the installation of a politically neutral cabinet to oversee parliamentary elections later this year.

Egypt's Prime Minister, Hisham Qandil, announced the nine changes to his cabinet on Tuesday.
