CAIRO, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- The Egyptian parliament will hold an emergency meeting on Sunday to discuss President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi's request of a cabinet reshuffle, official MENA news agency reported on Saturday.
The emergency session will be held amid speculations about a possible retirement of Prime Minister Sherif Ismail over health problems.
Ismail made a medical trip to Germany in late November 2017, assigning Housing Minister Mostafa Madbouli as acting premier until his return.
