Cairo — Ibrahim Mahlab, Egypt's Prime Minister-designate, said he has finished selecting ministers for the new cabinet, adding that the timing for oath taking still remains to be decided.
"There is no room for luxury ... Those who used to work for eight hours will now have to work for eight hours and a half," Mahlab told journalists on Friday.
Mahlab stated his cabinet will be one to fight for the best interest of the country and the people.
The Premier called for a media charter of honour, saying, "We are now in desperate need of the media and journalism's aid."
We must stand united to build Egypt, Mahlab added.
The former cabinet, headed by former PM Hazem al-Beblawi, resigned last Monday. Mahlab was tasked with forming a new cabinet.
He reassigned 17 ministers from the old cabinet to their posts in the new one.
