Salafi preacher rejects Coptic or female VP | Egypt Independent

Morsy finds being Prez no easy task.  Your friends the biggest problems.  A test on Morsy for the world to watch.

A senior Salafi preacher rejected on Tuesday the possibility that the next vice president would be a Copt or woman, although President Mohamed Morsy's advisers have said he would choose deputies from both of those groups.

“If the president appoints two deputies [who are] women or Copts, we would denounce this. He promised us not to appoint them," Sheikh Yasser Borhamy, the deputy leader of the Salafi Dawah group, told privately owned Al-Hayat 2 satellite channel.

Borhamy, who has a reputation for making controversial statements, said he opposes the idea because the vice president would become acting president in the event that anything happens to Morsy.
