This work presents a study of the electron suprathermal tails profile and its temperature inside of the magnetic clouds. We have modeled the electron velocity distribution function as a superposition of two populations: core (Maxwellian) and halo (Tsallis or kappa-like). The kappa parameter value, which characterizes the supra-thermal tail of the electron halo component has been estimated. We have found, based upon the events studied here, that there are no significant differences in the values of the kappa parameter, inside and outside magnetic clouds.
