The Prime Minister of Egypt is the head of the Egyptian government. The prime minister heads the cabinet, which in turn plays a leading role in shaping the agenda of the houses of Parliament. It may propose laws to Parliament as well as amendments during parliamentary meetings.

In the late 1970s, Egypt had several cohabitation governments which proved to be unstable, due to the struggle arising between the president and the prime minister.

A new cabinet was formed on 19 September 2015 and Sherif Ismail became the current Prime Minister.[1]
