Egypt gets new Suez Canal heads, replacing central figure Mamish

MOVES- President Abdel Fattah El Sisi has tapped Lieutenant General Osama Rabie as the new head of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA), succeeding Mohab Mamish, who was appointed as a presidential advisor on seaports and the Suez Canal, according to reports. Rabie served as the deputy chairman of the SCA under Mamish. Mamish has been head of SCA since 2012. Reuters also has the story.
