Foreign ministry officials to take over as presidential spokesmen

President Mohamed Morsy appointed Foreign Ministry officials Omar Amer and Ehab Fahmy as the new spokesmen for the president's office. The men will succeed Yasser Ali, who will step down this month.

Ali is set to take over at the Information and Decision Support Center, the Cabinet's think tank, in March.

Both Amer and Fahmy are well traveled after stints in several Egyptian embassies around the world. Amer worked in Australia, Vienna and Washington, while Fahmy was staff the nation's embassies in Algeria, Paris and Rome.

Privately-owned Al-Watan newspaper reported that Amer was the deputy ambassador to Washington before he joined the Foreign Ministry's EU partnership department. Previously, Fahmy was the political advisor for the Egyptian Embassy in Rome.

Ali said his new role was a relief, since working in the president's office as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood had been a burden due to strong criticism by opposition members for his political leanings. He made the comments in a phone interview Monday with privately owned channel CBC.
