I have learned my lesson and declined to announce on the blog the new Antiquities Minister yesterday when everyone else thought the job had gone to Abdel Fattah al-Banna.  Apparently not as Al Youm reveals.

The background seems to be a fight between pro and anti-Hawass camps. Al-Banna is militantly anti-Hawass. Many senior people in the Ministry have enjoyed patronage from Zahi and don't wish that hegemony disturbed.

More generally there are claims that the entire cabinet re-shuffle is un-constitutional. So we have another power vacuum and Hawass could conceivably still rise again, although the vitriol expressed towards him recently would make that very difficult and probably unlikely. In short, it's an ugly mess.
