Ahram Online, Wednesday 13 Jul 2011

The youth movement wants to change the ministers of finance, health, higher education and agriculture along with other NDP-linked ministers and heads of key authorities

The April 6 Youth Movement is meeting with the Prime Minister Essam Sharaf on Wednesday afternoon to give him a recommended list of new ministers to take the posts of those resigning in a wave of changes planned for the beginning of next week.

April 6 decided to keep the names confidential and announced in a press release today that they would recommend two names for each post.

The ministers being recommended are for posts in health, higher education, agriculture, finance, telecommunication, environment, foreign and international cooperation, justice, local management, petroleum, manpower, civil aviation, endowment and military production, in addition to both the councils of youth and investment, according to Mohamed Adel, spokesman of the April 6 Movement.

Moreover, April 6 Movement is planning to prepare another list for the changes to governors expected to take place in the coming days. The movement is expecting changes to reach 22 governorates, according to Ahmed Maher, a coordinator for April 6.

Earlier this week Sharaf announced in an official speech that he is working on his own changes in several ministerial and governorate posts. The speech came in response to the demands of the revolutionary protestors in Cairo, Alexandria and Suez.
