CAIRO, July 7 (Itar-Tass) - Egypt’s new authorities are still undecided on a candidate who will head the country’s interim government. Presidential media adviser Ahmed Al-Muslimani told a news conference in Cairo on Sunday that he could not name a concrete date when the prime minister would be appointed and the government formed.
He said that consultations in which the Muslim Brotherhood representatives were also being involved were still under way.
"Many political forces have presented their candidates to us. However, the final decision is yet to be made. The prime minister’s name is still unknown,” al-Muslimani went on to say. He believes that Mohamed El Baradei will be a logical choice.
Egypt’s state media reported on Saturday night that Egypt’s new interim President Adli Mansour had officially ordered Mohamed El Baradei to form an Egyptian government. The candidacy of a liberal opposition leader who is the former chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was suggested by Tamarrud (revolt) movement that had inspired mass protests on June 30, a prelude to ousting the former President Mohammed Morsi from power.
In the meantime, an Islamist Salafi political party called al-Nour has turned down El Baradei as a candidate to head the interim government.
