April 6 Youth Movement "Ahmed Maher Front" has expressed its rejection of Egypt's new Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi, as it includes a number of ministers from the former Mubarak regime.

"How will those ministers achieve the goals of a revolution that was against their regime," said the group's founder Ahmed Maher in a press statement on Wednesday.

The appointments included figures who were once members in the policies committee in the Mubarak National Democratic Party such as the new minister of information Dorreya Sharaf El-Din.

Maher also demanded that the presidency announce the recently-formed Cabinet's plan to achieve transparency.

The political activist said that the April 6 Youth Movement will monitor the performance of the Cabinet and will expose any attempts that compromise the Egyptian revolution's goals.
