Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi appointed Manal Awad Mikhail as governor of Domietta province Thursday. She is first-ever Coptic Christian woman to hold the position.
Mikhail was previously a deputy for the Giza governor.
Now, Egypt has eight female ministers in its cabinet, which is an all-time high in the country’s modern history.
Egypt has a population of 100 million people. Approximately 10 percent of the people are Christian. The rest of the nation is predominantly Muslim. Christians have continued to express their grievances with the lack of representation in the government.Instagram contests by Rewards Fuel
