Egypt's Prime Minister Sherif Ismail is expected to attend the House of Representatives' plenary session on Tuesday when it will vote on the cabinet reshuffle, Al-Ahram Arabic website reported.

The session, which is expected to start at noon, will be preceded by a meeting between speaker Ali Abdel-Aal and the heads of parliamentary committees to discuss the reshuffle.
According to the constitution, the complete list of reshuffled ministers should be presented to parliament for a single vote of approval or rejection.
The reshuffle will include nine ministries from the economic and public service ministries group, Ismail said on Monday evening.
The PM said that the new reshuffle would include the merger of two ministries into one, without giving further details.
He also confirmed that the list of names of ministerial candidates in the reshuffle was submitted on Monday to the House of Representatives.
Ismail's 34-minister cabinet underwent its last reshuffle in March 2016, when 10 ministers, mainly those with economic portfolios, were replaced.
“The philosophy of change adopted by the cabinet depends mainly on continuing social and economic reforms,” the PM’s statement said.
