Sources close to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Thursday said that leading Muslim Brotherhood member Asaad El-Sheikha was set to take up the post of the president's deputy chief-of-staff.
This comes one day after former diplomat Mohamed Fathi Refaa El-Tahtawi was appointed presidential chief-of-staff.
In another appointment Thursday, Essam El-Haddad, member of the Brotherhood's guidance bureau, was named presidential advisor for foreign affairs.
The same sources added that the presidential advisory team was still in the process of being drawn up. They went on to say that advisory team members were being selected based on their respective qualifications and not on their political orientations.
