“It is the American hypocrisy, treachery, adaptability and crude interference in Egypt’s affairs […] It is an essentially American coup that would not have taken place without its (America’s) consent,” it said.

On Tuesday, interim president Adly Mansour swore in a number of new Cabinet members, as well as economist Hazem el-Beblawi to the post of prime minister. According to the Associated Press, a number of the key positions went to members of the country’s “liberal movement,” including the appointment of three women.

However, despite these gestures, many of the liberals who led the rebellion against Morsi have denounced Mansour’s transition tactics and constitutional declarations as “dictatorial.”

State-run Egyptian publication Ahram has complete list of appointments (translated).
