President Mohamed Morsi has appointed a Christian, a woman and a Salafist to his presidential team, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Misr 25 TV channel reported on Tuesday.

Samir Marcus, a prominent Christian thinker; Pakinam El-Sharkawy, professor of political science at Cairo University, and Emad Abdel-Ghafour, Salafist Nour Party leader, are the new appointees.

Presidential spokesperson Yasser Ali told the Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr TV channel on Tuesday that the presidential team would be officially announced before the president’s trip to China on 27 August and that only one vice president would be appointed.  

Morsi appointed Judge Mahmoud Mekki as a vice president two weeks ago.

Egypt’s Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper on Wednesday claimed the presidential team would include Sakina Fouad, a prominent journalist and activist, and Seif El-Din Abdel-Fattah, a political science researcher and former political advisor, as well as members of political youth coalitions.

Another Lie
So big deal. Morsy appoints a Copt and Salafi as advisor but names an Islamist as VP. Though he said he would make a woman and a Copt VPs. This President has already make so many broken promises. It's no wonder people are starting to take to the streets in protest against him. An advisor can be ignored. A VP takes over if the President can't lead. There is a big difference. We'll see how much "ear" he gives to these new "advisors" that are non-Islamist and women. Women have been disrespected in this new government and are not being given enough say and power to represent the 50% of the population that is being treated as second class citizens.

Hi, Carol T, What is wrong with the statement that he said he would make a woman and a Copt VPs. The would make is not a promise and any commitment You are really discgrace to Egypt, calling a hardworking and sincere president a lier. Shame on you.

Disappointed? Yes. Surprised? Uh.. no not really...
What would you expect? Morsi is a puppet; He is not the one calling the shots. There are groups, who were previously ignored under Mubaraks government , who now have more clout. I will guarantee you one thing: Those groups aren't even from within Egypt.. They are from Lebanon, Saudi and UAE. Follow the $$$. Palestine friendliness is just an excuse; They couldnt care less what happens there

Some people are never satisfied
This is more of a response to "Expat" - get over yourself. Mursi is appointing people from all segments of Egyptian society, which INCLUDES SALAFIS. He has done exactly what he promised, which is to build a cohesive Egyptian government. You can't promote one demographic and bar the other from participating in a democracy, that would result in a return to Hosni Mubarak's rule, which unfortunately Egyptians like you prefer.

Hilarious. So MB lied.
Lots of Egyptians voted for MB thinking that religious people tell the truth. Well, the truth is that MB said that a woman and a Christian would be VICE PRESIDENT. But they haven't been given that spot. Not to mention that whatever powers this fake "team" has will be diluted by the presence of the Salafi, who presumably thinks of Christians and Women quite low. In short: Islamists lied.
