Egypt has named Mohamed Ahmed Morsy as the new Minister of State for Military Production following the death of former minister Mohamed El-Assar, who passed away earlier this month.

Morsy was sworn in by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi on Sunday.

Egypt’s parliament approved during its plenary on Sunday morning the appointment of the new minister.

Al-Assar's successor served as a former director of the country's Arab Organisation for Industrialisation (AOI) and a former assistant to the defence minister.

The late minister Al-Assar held the position since 2015 and died on 6 July at the age of 74 after a battle with disease.
