Egypt's new cabinet sworn in, state TV says

December 7, 2011 16:27

CAIRO - Egypt's new cabinet was sworn in before the head of the ruling army council on Wednesday, state television reported, after successive delays as Prime Minister Kamal al-Ganzouri struggled to form a competent team with enough public support.

The country's military rulers brought veteran politician Ganzouri out of retirement to lead a new interim government nearly two weeks ago. Its predecessor resigned during clashes between police and protesters demanding the army quit power.

He named an interior minister on Wednesday, rounding off the key appointments to the new cabinet which will face the dual challenges of restoring security to the restive nation and reversing an economic slump.
