Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Judge Mohamed Attia has authorised Egypt's newly elected parliament to set a date for the questioning of Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, head of the ruling military council, and Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim over the Port Said football disaster.
Seventy-four people died during violence at a football match on 1 February. Many blame negligent policing for the deaths.
The ministers of housing, petroleum, social insurance and supply will also be questioned on various unrelated matters.
The petroleum minister will be questioned over the sale of Egyptian gas to Israel.
Attia made the move on Sunday in response to calls by a number of MPs for the field marshal and ministers to face questions in parliament.
