Seventeen new governors to be sworn in Saturday: Presidency - Politics - Egypt - Ahram Online: President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Thursday approved the appointment of 17 new governors, a move which has been anticipated for weeks.
The heads of the 17 governorates, out of a total of 27 in Egypt, will be sworn in on Saturday, presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said in a statement on Thursday.
Sources told Ahram Online earlier that the move was almost concluded recently but withheld due to last-minute changes that were to be made for a wider consensus on the appointments.
The names of the appointees however are not yet released.
Egypt has traditionally appointed military and police generals as heads for the majority of its governorates.
