Egypt Names New Prime Minister with Salafist Agreement

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Egypt’s interim government has named economist Hazem el-Beblawi as the prime minister, the post that was supposed to taken over by Mohamed ElBaradei until Salafist Muslims vehemently objected because of his liberal and secular views.

The Salafist Al Nour party agreed to the appointment of el-Beblawi, and the interim regime also appointed ElBaradei as vice president.

The prime minister will play an important part in a new constitution, which Egypt has unsuccessfully tried to write since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak. One of the most sensitive items in the constitution will be the character of Egypt, which Al Nour wants to be Islamic.
