Egypt’s parliament on Sunday approved a cabinet reshuffle affecting 10 ministers and 11 deputy ministers.

The chamber also divided the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation, replacing it with a powerful council led by Prime Minister Mustafa Madbouli to chart and approve policies and giving the international cooperation part to the former tourism minister.

The reshuffle will see the ministers of tourism, justice, industry, aviation and social solidarity, parliamentary affairs and agriculture either changed or shifted. It will also appoint an information minister for the first time in years.

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is scheduled to swear in the new ministers on Sunday evening.

The reshuffle follows some scathing criticism from the overwhelmingly pro-government parliament and in local media of cabinet’s recent performance.

The appointment of an information minister is apparently aimed at streamlining engagement with the media and unifying the government message. It comes at a time when the Egyptian leader has called for news outlets to contribute positively to his high-octane drive to upgrade the country’s rickety infrastructure, build new cities and an elaborate network of roads while simultaneously fighting an Islamist insurgency in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula.
