Egypt official predicts limited cabinet reshuffle

Cairo: A limited cabinet reshuffle is
expected to take place shortly, an Egyptian military official
told a news agency on Saturday.

"Soon there will be a limited cabinet reshuffle in the
caretaker government headed by Ahmed Shafiq, to include three
or four ministers," the official said.

Pro-democracy activists, who helped launch nationwide
protests that overthrew president Hosni Mubarak, have
repeatedly called for a new cabinet of technocrats to replace
figures from the old regime.

Mubarak had sacked his government and tasked Shafiq to
head a new cabinet in a bid to placate protesters before
stepping down on February 11 and handing power to the Supreme
Council of the Armed Forces.
