The Egyptian government underwent a significant reshuffle on Thursday, with replacements being made in the Defense, Interior and Finance Ministries, after President Abdel Fattah Sisi won a second term in office, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

On June 7, Sisi asked then Housing Minister Moustafa Madbouly to form a new government after Prime Minister Sherif Ismail submitted his resignation.

The new members of the cabinet, including Defense Minister Mohamed Ahmed Zaki Mohamed and Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfik, have taken the oath of office.

Amr Nassar was appointed as the new trade and industry minister, and Mohammed Maait became the finance minister.

At the same time, several cabinet members, such as Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek Mulla, retained their positions.
