Brotherhood member nominated for agriculture minister

By-Almasry Alyoum | 2 July 2012

Mohamed Taha Wahdan, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau and a professor of agriculture at Suez Canal University, has been nominated for the post of agriculture minister in the new cabinet, sources within the Agriculture Ministry said Sunday.

According to ministry sources, Salah al-Sayyed Youssef, the second agriculture minister in former Prime Minister Essam Sharaf’s cabinet, who sources say is known for his “Brotherhood leanings,” is another possible nomination. Other nominees include Mohsen Batran, who serves as head of the Principal Bank for Development and Agricultural Credit, and current Agriculture Minister Mohamed Reda Ismail.
In the wake of President Mohamed Morsy’s win, political forces, including the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, have expressed their desire to form a government that represents all political movements. There have been conflicting reports over the past few days concerning who would be nominated for the post of prime minister to succeed Kamal al-Ganzouri, who was appointed in November 2011.
