Qandils cabinet is Brotherhood-old regime alliance: Egyptian Current Party
The Egyptian Current Party, which was established primarily by former Muslim Brotherhood youth members, has stated that the new cabinet appears to be "a coalition between the Muslim Brotherhood and the old regime," when it was supposed to be formed from different factions in Egypt's political arena.
In a statement released on Sunday, the party also criticised the fact that the new ministers are mostly unfamiliar figures both to the public and in their respective fields, citing a failure to produce any clear guidelines for the choice of ministers.
The statement also said that the party was surprised and concerned by the presence of certain ministers associated with ousted president Hosni Mubarak's regime, such as the ministers of petroleum, local development and interior.
The party also rejected the inclusion of ministers from the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party and its allies, given that no ministers were chosen from parties that represent other political factions, and the underrepresentation of revolutionary figures, women and Copts.
Members of the new cabinet, who were appointed by Prime Minister Hisham Qandil and approved by President Morsi, were sworn into office in front of the president last Thursday

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
