Egypt Announces New Governors for Cairo, Alexandria and Other Cities

July 4, 2024

Egypt’s State Information Service announced on Wednesday the new appointment of new governors for Egypt’s 27 governorates.

The 27 governors took the oath of office before President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi at the Ittihadiya Presidential Palace on Wednesday 3 July.

Among the 27 governors, six are returning governors who will keep their posts: New Valley Governor Mohamed El-Zamalot, Matrouh Governor Khaled Shuaib, Red Sea Governor Amr Hanafy, Menoufia Governor Ibrahim Abu-Laimon, Beni Suef Governor Mohamed Hani, and Fayoum Governor Ahmed El-Ansary. Other key governorates, such as Cairo and Alexandria, have seen leadership changes. A significant portion of the governors come from an armed forces background.

The governor’s role in Egypt is crucial, directly shaping the daily lives of Egyptian citizens. Governors are responsible for developing plans to address local governorate-level issues, managing local education, hygiene, garbage collection, medical centers, road maintenance, public transport and more.

Governors are also responsible for security within their governorates, adopting security plans, identifying investment opportunities, and presenting development plans to the Egyptian Cabinet.
