Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi on Thursday named Mostafa Madbouly as the country's new prime minister, tasking him with forming the new cabinet.
Madbouly — now former minister of housing, utilities and urban communities — has been the country's acting prime minister since the departure of Sherif Ismail.
Egypt's cabinet resigned this week to pave the way for Sissi to appoint a new government following his re-election to a second term in office.
Ministers will retain their portfolios in a caretaker government for now.
Ismail has gone abroad to receive medical treatment, the website also reported, without elaborating.
