Columnist look to pre-empt a conversation on a cabinet shuffle

Columnist looks to pre-empt a conversation on a cabinet shuffle: When there’s an elections,there’s bound to be baseless talk of a cabinet shuffle. Come to think if it, even when there isn’t. Al Masry Al Youm columnist Sabry Ghoneim looks to preempt that conversation with her candidates. CBE Governor Tarek Amer and Administrative Control Authority head Mohamed Erfan are the best options for Egypt’s next prime minister. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s selection between these two contenders will depend on his priorities moving forward; if the president will stick to an economy-centric agenda, Amer should be his pick since he has proved himself worth, says Ghoneim. However, if the president wants to focus on overhauling the government system in its entirety to weed out corruption and inefficiencies, he should look no further than Erfan.
