After being sworn in by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi as El Beheira's newly appointed governor this morning, Nadia Saleh has become Egypt's first ever female governor, Al Hayat newspaper reports.

Saleh, who has a degree in engineering, had been serving as the deputy governor of Beheira since 2013. The now-former governor of Beheira and her former boss, Mohamed Sultan, was appointed as the governor of neighbouring Alexandria.

The move could be seen as a good indication of the government's position on women's issues, as the office she currently holds has traditionally only been occupied by men from a military or security background.

The cabinet reshuffle, which included 9 ministers and five governors, was approved by the Parliament earlier this week amidst the government's efforts to ensure the success of its reform plan.
