Egypt's newly appointed prime minister was granted most of the powers of the president Wednesday by the country's military rulers.
Afterward, he swiftly moved to swear-in his cabinet.
Prime Minister Kamal Ganzouri was given all presidential powers excluding control over the military and the judiciary, armed forces spokesman Lt. Col. Amr Imam told CNN.
A day before the swearing-in, Ganzouri said on state television that "the new national government will be the salvation government of the January 28 revolution."
The new cabinet will serve until the presidential elections.FULL STORY
