Following the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak in 2011, he was one of the founders of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party and was a member of parliament. News reports on 7 July 2013 stated that he was likely to be appointed interim prime minister by the authorities that seized power in the 2013 Egyptian coup, though this appointment was blocked within the post-coup coalition by the Salafist Al Nour Party. On 12 July 2013 Al Arabiya reported that he had been chosen as Egypt's interim deputy prime minister. After his appointment he suspended his membership in the Social Democratic Party. He resigned on 27 January 2014.
