The new Egyptian president is working to make history with the appointment of a woman and a Christian to important Vice Presidential posts. This is a big move for a country that has long shunned these types of political decisions. Some say that the moves are an effort by Egyptian leadership to turn the corner and move into a new era of politics. It appears to be working, since the decisions are being applauded all around the globe.

Mohamed Morsi, the first democratically elected president of Egypt, will appoint a woman and a Christian as his Vice Presidents.
“For the first time in Egyptian history—not just modern but in all Egyptian history—a woman will take that position,” presidential policy advisor Ahmed Deif told Christiane Amanpour of CNN Monday. “And it’s not just a vice president who will represent a certain agenda and sect, but a vice president who is powerful and empowered and will be taking care of critical advising within the presidential Cabinet.”
