CAIRO, June 17 (Aswat Masriya) Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi convened the new government, headed by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab, on Tuesday, soon after the new ministers were sworn into office.
The meeting is expected to discuss a roadmap for the upcoming period, the state news agency said.
The new cabinet includes 34 ministers, 13 of which are new, and does not include an Information Ministry or a Ministry of Administrative Development.
