New Cabinet Takes Oath in Egypt

Egypt swore in its new interim cabinet naming mainly liberals and technocrats to lead a transition to civilian rule, even as deposed President Mohammed Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood dismissed the government as illegitimate.
In an ornate hall in the presidential palace, 33 cabinet ministers were sworn in by Adli Mansour, the interim president who was appointed by the military when it toppled Mohammed Mursi on July 3.
The armed forces chief, Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, was given the post of first deputy to interim prime minister Hazem El Beblawi, a 76-year-old liberal economist tasked with implementing a “road map” to restore full civilian rule and repair a crumbling economy.
