Egypt's cabinet sent on Monday a list of minister hopefuls to parliament ahead of an expected cabinet reshuffle, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.
According to informed sources, parliament will vote on the list during its general assembly on Tuesday.
No names on the list have been announced yet, or leaked.
The much-anticipated cabinet reshuffle was set to be presented to parliament Sunday, but was postponed to accomodate Lebanese President Michael Aoun's visit to Cairo.
Last week, Prime Minister Sherif Ismail told state-owned news agency MENA that between eight and 11 new minister positions would be included in the limited reshuffle.
In January, Ismail said that some ministries could be merged and some eliminated in the reshuffle, but that no new ministries would be created.
Some figures who had been nominated to take ministry portfolios declined the offer, Sherif said, due to difficult conditions the country was facing at the time. According to the PM, this limited the government's available choices.
Ismail's 34-minister cabinet underwent its last reshuffle in March 2016, when 10 ministers, mainly those with economic portfolios, were replaced.
The March changes included the ministers of tourism, finance, investment, justice, civil aviation, irrigation, human resources, antiquities and transportation.
Under Article 147 of Egypt's 2014 constitution, the president is entitled to conduct a cabinet reshuffle in consultation with the prime minister and with the approval of an absolute majority of attendees of the house, or no less than a third of its members.
