Egyptian PM says reshuffle to include Sisi's defense minister: report
Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi has said a cabinet reshuffle will include the defence ministry, an Egyptian newspaper said on Saturday, in the clearest sign yet that Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi plans to stand for president. Army chief Sisi, now defence minister in Egypt's interim government, deposed Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in July after mass protests against his rule and is widely expected to announce his candidacy within days and win an election easily. The reshuffle will not be announced before a visit by Beblawi to Saudi Arabia, a major financial supporter of Egypt's interim government, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the privately-owned Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper quoted him as saying.
