Egypt's new prime minister worked Wednesday to form a government tasked with organizing presidential polls expected to bring the army chief to power at a time of insecurity and economic woes.The new government faces a host of challenges, ahead of an election seen as a major step in a road map outlined by the interim authorities after the military ousted Islamist President Mohammad Morsi in July.Analysts said the formation of a new government was aimed at improving the political image of the interim authorities ahead of Sisi's official announcement.Jihadist group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has claimed most of the deadliest attacks since Morsi's ouster, saying they were to avenge a crackdown by security forces targeting Morsi supporters that has killed more than 1,400 people.
