Egypt’s Housing Minister Ibrahim Mahlab talks during an interview with the media in Cairo in this September 3, 2012 file photo. Egypt’s government resigned on February 24, 2014, paving the way for army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to declare his candidacy for president of a strategic U.S. ally gripped by political strife. Mahlab, a former official in Mubarak’s National Democratic Party, was expected to be named prime minister of the new government, said a security source. REUTERS/Stringer/Files (EGYPT – Tags: POLITICS)
