Cabinet source denies impending ministerial reshuffle

An official cabinet source dismissed news that there would be a cabinet reshuffle.

The source said any such step would be taken in coordination with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces and announced at the appropriate time.

Egyptian media reports recently said Prime Minister Essam Sharaf intends to change the ministers of interior, health and higher education.

Observers believe the performance of certain ministries to be erratic, and that they are incapable of coping with crises. On Monday, Egyptian rights organizations called for a cabinet reshuffle to address what they described as government laxity.
