CAIRO - Egypt's newly-appointed presidential media adviser denied late Saturday evening the appointment of opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei as the country's interim prime minister, state-run news agency MENA reported.

"Until now, President Adli Mansour has not officially assigned ElBardei or anyone else to form the new government," said Ahmed al- Mislimani, who has just been appointed as presidential media adviser.

Al-Mislimani added that the discussions are still going on about the nomination for interim prime minister, noting the transitional government has to be "a crisis-managment government" at the current critical stage.

He said there had not been a specific date for announcing the government formation and its leader, denying "the media leaks" about ElBaradei's appointment.
