That’s the number of Christians among the 25 people sworn in as governors by Egypt’s interim President Adly Mansour on Tuesday, according to Mideast Christian News. Egypt has 27 governates; Mansour filled the governor’s position in all but two of them.

The incoming slate of regional executives has a Mubarak-era flavour, prompting loud protests from both the Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition groups that galvanized the popular uprising that, with the help of the Egyptian military, drove the Brotherhood from power on 3 July. Of the 25 appointees, 11 are former military officials, and a further two are former police commanders, Al-Ahram reported.
