Newly appointed Prime Minister Kamal El-Ganzouri met with Fayza Abu El-Naga, the minister of international cooperation in the outgoing cabinet of Essam Sharaf, who is expected to keep her post in the new government.

El-Ganzouri also met with Moataz Abdel Fatah who is expected to head a minstry of youth, Wael El-Gegawy who could be named either for ministry of education or communications, and General Mohamed Ibrahim, the former head of Giza police who could become the next minister of interior.

The new prime minister has announced that he plans to hold on to 10 ministers from Sharaf's team, bring back several pre-revolution ministers, appoint at least four youth and two women in his new cabinet.
