Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak made minor adjustments to his cabinet Sunday, topping the changes with the reassignment of the justice portfolio. The heads of the foreign affairs, interior and defense ministries retained their portfolios. Mamdouh Marei, head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, replaces Mahmoud Abu el-Leil, who resigned 10 days ago from his post as minister of justice, reported Egypt's official news agency MENA, without providing additional details. Marei headed the Presidential Election Commission that oversaw Egypt's first presidential elections last September. The previous cabinet shuffle was in December following legislative elections that ended earlier that month.
