CAIRO, July 6 (Itar-Tass) - Former IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei has been officially instructed to form a new Egyptian government, national television reported on Saturday, July 6.

He will be sworn in a head of a provisional government of technocrats later.

ElBaradei, who is one of the leaders of the National Salvation Front, which is in opposition to Muslim Brotherhood, agreed to accept the job but on condition that he will have the full power as prime minister.

It was reported earlier that chief banker Hisham Ramez would become a new prime minister. However he denied these reports himself. He may take up the post of deputy prime minister for economic issues.

ElBaradei’s candidature was proposed at a meeting with acting President Adly Mansour by the leaders of the Tamarrod (Rebellion) movement that organised mass protests in the country on June 30, which eventually led to the removal of President Mohamed Morsi.
