Egypt military rulers promise government reshuffle
The speaker of Egypt's Islamist-dominated parliament says the ruling military council has promised to reshuffle the Cabinet under pressure from legislators.
The Muslim Brotherhood-led parliament has been demanding it form a Cabinet to replace the military-appointed one it accuses of inefficiency.
The ruling generals, who have the power to sack the government, have resisted the calls and hinted at times that they won't allow the Brotherhood to dominate the country.
Hours after suspending parliament sessions for a week in protest, speaker Saad el-Katatni said the head of the ruling military council called him to promise a government reshuffle- which falls short of a sacking. El-Katatni, a Brotherhood member, said the call was "satisfying."
