MOHAMMED MURSI SWORN IN AS EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT
- Mohammed Mursi has been sworn in as Egypt's first civilian, democratically elected president at a historic ceremony in Cairo, BBC reported.
Mr Mursi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate, took the oath before the supreme constitutional court.
In the ceremony before the court, Mr Mursi said the Egyptian people had "laid the foundations for a new life, for full freedom, a genuine democracy, for putting the meaning and significance of the constitution and stability above everything else."
His government would be based on the democratic pillars of "the constitutional court, the Egyptian judiciary, and the executive and legislative powers."
Mr Mursi said he was determined that the constitutional court, which had declared November's parliamentary election to be flawed, would remain "independent, strong, effective - away from any suspicion and abuse."
