Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil will remain in his position despite an expected government reshuffle, a presidential spokesman announced on Wednesday.

Last Saturday, President Mohamed Morsi stated in an interview with Al Jazeera that Egypt's cabinet would be reshuffled "soon," although he declined to specify which ministers would be replaced.

Replacement of the current cabinet, including Qandil, with a government of 'national unity' has been a longstanding demand of Egypt's political opposition, which accuses the Morsi-appointed government of being beholden to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, the group from which the president hails.
