CAIRO – 27 November 2019: Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly on Wednesday said in a press conference that for the first time ten youth from political parties were appointed to serve in executive positions.
Sixteen newly appointed governors, and thirteen deputies sworn in on Wednesday morning at al-Ittihadiya Presidential Palace, sources told Egypt Today, ahead of an expected ministerial reshuffle.
The sources revealed that the newly appointed governors and deputies have different political backgrounds, among them prominent youths from opposition parties.
President Sisi met with the newly-appointed officials and told them that the state has given them the chance to implement their ideas as young people, Madbouly said, adding that they will meet with the president after few months for the second time.
Madbouly noted that periodical follow-up will be implemented to assess the work of the new deputies.
The government is keen to involve young people in all fields including local executive work, he said, adding that the deputy governors would receive intensive training courses.
Madbouly noted that Sisi ordered selecting people for the executive posts with institutional high competency based on scientific qualifications, experience and acquired skills.
The state, last time, involved 12 deputy governors from the young people, Madbouly said, adding that such step has yielded positive results, and therefore the state has tended to expand this successful experience.
Madbouly added that those young people would be able to gain much experience while performing their executive duties, which will later enable them to take posts that are more prominent.
He noted that most of the youth appointed during the current and the last amendments are in the thirties, adding that some of them hold a master's degree, while others have a doctorate.
