Interim Prime Minister Hazem el-Beblawi (pictured) announced on Wednesday that Egypt’s transitional cabinet is expected to be formed by early next week, following last week's ouster of deposed president Mohammed Morsi.

Egypt’s transitional cabinet is expected to be formed by early next week, interim prime minister Hazem el-Beblawi told Reuters on Wednesday.

“The talks are still ongoing with different candidates and I expect we will finalise the formation of the cabinet by early next week,” Beblawi said, adding that he had not yet picked a finance minister.

Beblawi, an economist and former finance minister, was named interim prime minister on Tuesday to lead Egypt’s army-backed transitional government after the ouster of elected President Mohamed Mursi by the military last week following mass protests.
