Egypt’s Salafi Party Refuses to Join New Cabinet, Ahram Says

Aug. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Egypt’s Salafi al-Nour Party has refused to join the new Cabinet, the state-run al-Ahram newspaper reported.

Al-Nour rejected a proposal by Prime Minister-designate Hisham Qandil to appoint party member Khaled Alim Eddin as environment minister because the party was not consulted on the Cabinet formation, al-Ahram said, citing senior party member Younis Makhyoun.

The new Cabinet is expected to be sworn in today.
