Egypt's parliament has approved a limited cabinet reshuffle, appointing new ministers for culture, tourism, local development and business.
The approval which came on Sunday by the 596-seat chamber paves way for President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to swear in the new ministers.
The new ministers include French-educated Einas Abdel-Dayem, a career flute player currently in charge of the Cairo Opera House, an arts and music complex at the heart of Cairo that has been a beacon of culture for Egyptians since the 1980s.
Another woman, U.S.-educated economist Rania al-Mashat, takes over the tourism portfolio, a key job at a time when Egypt is struggling to revive the lucrative sector decimated by years of turmoil following a 2011 popular uprising.
