CAIRO, July 20 (UPI) -- An Egyptian state radio station on Friday began airing a program in which newly elected President Mohamed Morsi answers citizens' questions, officials said.

The program, called "The People Ask and the President Answers," will run daily during the month of Ramadan, the Egypt Independent reported.

The first 10 episodes, each of which are about five minutes long and feature a listener asking one question and Morsi answering it, have already been recorded, said the station's director of public programming, Magdy Suleiman.

"We chose a set of general issues to focus on in the first 10 episodes, including security, housing, unemployment and agricultural land reclamation," Suleiman said.

Suleiman also said the first episodes were also video taped and would be posted daily on the president's Facebook page.
