Egitto. Con il governo d’emergenza verso le elezioni


egittoSo, we finally got the new emergency cabinet which will prevail during the upcoming parliamentary elections. The former primer minister, Mahlab, is now a presidential aide for national and strategic projects which is appropriate for this giant human bulldozer. El-Sisi praised Mahlab efforts on a number of big national projects in the last two years. The new prime minister, Sherif Ismail, rewarded for Eni gas discoveries and many other issues is preparing his team for the great political (parliament), military (terrorists), economy and cultural (against the Islamists) battle. Helmy El-Namnam is an “illuminist” writer against the Islamists State and ideologies. He took on the challenge of reviving Egypt’s culture palaces to spread artistic activities in deprived areas, using culture as a weapon against “ignorance and terrorism.” Applause for our new minister of culture.

Three beautiful ladies

Sahar Nasr: Minister of International Cooperation, most probably she will be the real successor of the iron woman Fayza Aboul-Naga who challenged the American hegemony. Nasr worked as a leading financial economist in the Middle East and North Africa World Bank Finance and Private Sector Development Department. She was also a regional leader for the World Bank on issues of financial sector development, as well as programme manager for Mena of the Micro, Small and Medium Sized Enterprise Technical Assistance Facility. Nabila Makram Abdel Shaheed: Minister of Immigration and Egyptian Expatriates’ Affairs, Makram is an Egyptian diplomat who served as Egypt’s consulate general in Rome. She also served as deputy consulate general in Dubai. Somebody criticized her fro wearing a cut dress. Ghada Waly: Minister of Social Solidarity, Ghada Waly was secretary-general of the Social Development Fund prior to her appointment as minister in March 2014. During the year and a half in office, she has implemented the first phase of Egypt’s conditional cash transfers programme called “Solidarity and Dignity” (Takaful wi Karama). Waly also cracked down on tens of Ngos as part of the government’s plan to regulate their activities (most of them belong to the Muslim Brothethood and other Islamists).

Hisham Zazou, Minister of tourism, is reappointed minister of tourism. Zaazou resigned in June 2013 when a member of the militant Islamist group Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya was appointed governor of Luxor. After the governor resigned, Zazou withdrew his resignation and continued as minister. The new minister will be in charge of reviving Egypt’s ailing tourism sector, which suffered a number of blows since 2011’s political and social upheaval. We lost Laila Iskander, Egypt’s Minister of Urban Renewal and Informal Settlements as well as its minister which had been merged with the Ministry of Housing. Interrogation marks.
