PM: Cabinet reshuffle to take place next week

A reshuffle of the Cabinet will be done early next week, Prime Minister Hesham Qandil

said in remarks carried on state newspaper Al-Ahram's website on Monday, but he declined to give details on which ministries will be affected.

President Mohamed Morsy's opponents have been demanding the formation of a new government to oversee parliamentary elections expected to begin this year.

The Muslim Brotherhood, the movement that propelled Morsy to power last year, has also become increasingly critical of the Qandil government.
