CAIRO, July 6 Egyptian central bank governor
Hisham Ramez said on Saturday he would remain in his position
following the overthrow of President Mohamed Mursi, and denied a
report he would be named prime minister.
"I will not be the prime minister," he told Reuters. "I am
staying on as the governor of the central bank, which is a very
important role. I am not a politician."
Since his appointment in January, Ramez has won respect from
financiers as he has negotiated on a still to be finalised loan
from the International Monetary Fund.
Following the military's removal of Mursi on Wednesday, an
interim government of technocrats is expected to be announced in
the coming days.
