Moustafa Madbouly  is the current Prime Minister of Egypt. He was appointed by President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to succeed Sherif Ismail following his government’s resignation in the wake of Sisi’s re-election. Madbouly also serves in the Egyptian Government as Minister of Housing and Urban Utilities, and has also briefly served as interim Prime Minister.


Madbouly graduated from Cairo University, receiving a master’s degree and PhD from the Faculty of Engineering in 1988 and 1997, respectively. From September 2009 until November 2011, Madbouly was the chairman of the General Authority for Urban Planning at the Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Development; he also was the executive director of the Training and Urban Studies Institute at the Housing and Construction Research Center at the Ministry of Housing. From November 2012 until February 2014 he was the regional director for Arab countries at the United Nations Human Settlements Program. In March 2014 he was appointed Minister of Housing under Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab, a post he continued to hold following the appointment of Sherif Ismail as Prime Minister in September 2015. During his tenure as housing minister, the “million housing units” project came to fruition, and was one of the major national projects that came into force after President Sisi took office, though the project was former Housing Minister Mohamed Fathy al-Baradei’s idea. For political and social reasons, the project, which was suggested by Baradie in 2011, stopped during the Muslim brotherhood era, and came into force again when Madbouly took office. In November 2017, Madbouly was appointed interim Prime Minister following Sherif Ismail’s departure to Germany for medical treatment.
