Morsi´s first PM

Today , 25 days after becoming President , Muhammed Morsi has selected his first prime minister, Hisham Qandil , minister of Irrigation under the Governments of Sharaf and Ganzouri since August 2011.

An interesting choice with some pros , but also with some clear cons.

The pros as i see it , it shows the importance that Morsi gives to the Nile Bassin issue , it's a top priority and having someone as the head of Government who has in-depth knowledge of the issue is a clear plus. If Qandil proves to be a good diplomat, then this issue can be solved in a way that will benefit Egypt , and the region for years to come. 

I like the fact that Qandil is young , that's also a big plus.

The cons is the fact that he's one more technocrat , what Morsi needs is a strong government with a political agenda that will work day and night for the wast majority of Egyptians. Dealing with the basics , starting with giving priority to the basic demands of the Jan25 demands , bread , freedom , and social justice. This might only be symbolic firsts , but at least the issues has to be adressed in a manner were people feel that the government cares about the Egyptian people. I doubt that Qandil has the political clout to take on this task head on.

I also have problems with the fact that Morsi seems to prefer a weak government , after having complained over the Ganzouri government for monthts. It's only a strong government that has the confidence not only of the president , but also of the people that can make a difference at this point, and the appointment of Qandil indicates that the government will be nothing of the sort , it looks to be one more goverment of mediocracy.

Bellow is an interview with the new prime minister , whom i wish all the best , God knows he will need it.

Revolutionize the way you interact with Holly Quran. Zakeroon application will send you a 1-minute-long of verses every morning, read the verses, and you automatically join a global circle of Muslims from all countries who collaboratively finish reading the Quran (Khitma) everyday.
At any point you can request from 1 to 30 minutes long of verses, coming to you at random. Again, by reading the verses you participate in the global circle of Muslims reading the Quran using the Zakeroon way. What's more, with Zakeroon you can create your own Khitma to read individually, or ask your friends to join and finish reading the Quran together times and times again.
