                   Edison International Announces Scilacci, Adler, Finneran Elected to New Positions

        ROSEMEAD, Calif., May 16, 2008 - Three executives have been elected to senior positions at Edison
International (NYSE:EIX) and its subsidiary Edison Mission Group:  W. James (Jim) Scilacci Jr. 52, was named
executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer for Edison International succeeding Thomas
(Tom) McDaniel, 59, who is retiring after a distinguished 37-year career with the company;  Robert L. Adler,
60, was named executive vice president and general counsel for Edison International succeeding J. A. (Lon)
Bouknight, 64, who is retiring; and John P. Finneran Jr., 48, was named senior vice president and chief
financial officer for Edison Mission Group (EMG) succeeding Scilacci.  Each will assume these new
responsibilities on August 1.

Scilacci elected executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer for Edison International

        "Jim has served as CFO of both our major subsidiaries, Southern California Edison (SCE) for five years
and EMG for three years, has been involved in or led many of our major financings over the last several years
and headed SCE's 2003 General Rate Case team which makes him the ideal choice for CFO of Edison
International," said Theodore (Ted) F. Craver Jr., 56, president, Edison International, who will succeed John
E. Bryson, 64, as chairman and CEO effective August 1. "Jim's deep knowledge of the industry and our
businesses means that he will contribute from day one to the senior management team responsible for realizing
the ambitious performance goals we have set for ourselves at Edison International."

        "In following Tom into the job, Jim is succeeding someone whose record of excellent service spans
virtually every part of Edison International and its subsidiaries," Bryson said.  "From engineering to
customer service to strategic planning to finance to serving as CEO of both Edison Capital and Edison Mission
Energy, Tom has done it all, and done it superbly."

        Scilacci is currently senior vice president and chief financial officer of EMG.  Before assuming his
current position at EMG, he was chief financial officer at SCE from 2000 to 2005.  A 24-year veteran at the
company, Scilacci received his B.A. in economics from UCLA and an MBA from Santa Clara University. He and his
wife Linda have three children.


Adler elected executive vice president and general counsel for Edison International

        "Bob and I have worked closely together on several major Edison issues and transactions over the last
10 years including the required sale of SCE's 12 gas-fired generation plants during deregulation, the
Settlement Agreement with the California Public Utilities Commission to restore SCE's financial health during
the California energy crisis, and the sale of Edison Mission Energy's international assets as the centerpiece
of its financial restructuring," said Craver. "Bob will head my transition planning activities beginning July
1 as executive vice president before assuming his additional role as general counsel on August 1.  I have the
utmost respect for Bob's wisdom, experience and above all, his integrity."

        "Lon Bouknight joined our company in 2005 at a time of great change in the energy industry.  His wise
counsel and sound judgment made a significant contribution to our success.  He has served as an invaluable
member of our senior management team, and for 20 years prior to that as one of our principal outside
lawyers," said Bryson.  "He is among the most highly regarded lawyers in the country for his knowledge of and
experience in the energy industry."

        Adler has been a partner in the Los Angeles law firm of Munger, Tolles and Olson LLP since 1978
practicing corporate and business law, and is currently co-managing partner.  Beyond his extensive
involvement and experience with the electric power business and Edison International, his practice has
spanned many industries, including retail, health care, entertainment, communications and professional
sports.  He is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard University and a cum laude graduate of Harvard Law
School where he served as an officer of the Harvard Law Review.  He and his wife Sara, a professor at Scripps
College in Claremont, Calif., have two adult children.

Finneran elected senior vice president and chief financial officer for Edison Mission Group

        Finneran is currently EMG's senior vice president of business management, a job which includes
managing EMG's partnerships in various power generation projects, information technology and Edison Capital's
investment portfolio.  Finneran joined Edison Mission Energy in 1999 as vice president and regional chief
financial officer for the Americas region.  Previously he was senior vice president of finance and treasurer
of Richfood Holdings, a Fortune 500 food retail and wholesale distribution company.  He had served as a
senior financial executive with two East Coast power companies and as an accountant with Price Waterhouse and

        Finneran holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Siena College and a Master of Science degree
in accounting from George Washington University and is a Certified Public Accountant. He and his wife Dena
have five children.
