CAIRO, (AP) – Egypt’s new prime minister and members of his Cabinet have been approved and sworn in by the country’s military rulers.

The new Cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, includes new faces in the key foreign, interior and justice ministries. It is expected to be met with the approval of the pro-reform groups that led an 18-day uprising that forced President Hosni Mubarak to step down on Feb. 11.

State TV showed members of the government taking an oath during Monday’s swearing-in-ceremony before the head of Egypt’s Armed Forces Supreme Council, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi.

The caretaker government’s main job will be to help steer the country through reforms and toward free elections.
