Three ‘Beauties’Join Egypt’s New Cabinet
Egypt’s new Cabinet – headed by the former petroleum minister – was sworn in before Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi on Saturday, a week after the government resigned amid a corruption probe.
In a cabinet of 33, three of the appointees are women. Ghada Waly retained her position as minister of social solidarity. Nabila Makram was appointed as minister of immigration and Egyptian expatriate affairs and Sahar Nasr was named a minister of international cooperation.
Shortly after the swearing-in ceremony was over, some Egyptians took to social media to praise the three female ministers, saying it has been a long-time since Egypt had “pretty” and “chic” women ministers. Details
