#AceWorldNews says Egypt’s outgoing housing minister, Ibrahim Mahlab, told state-run Al-Ahram newspaper Tuesday that he had been asked to form a new government.

Mahlab is a civil engineer who was an official in deposed President Hosni Mubarak’s National Democratic Party, Reuters reported.

Army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is expected to run for the presidency, was the defence minister in the country’s government that resigned Monday.
