Egypt’s first freely-elected president Mohamed Morsi says Egyptians ‘chose a parliament in free and fair elections’, despite being ruled unconstitutional by the country’s high court.
“We will maintain achievements of Egyptian people,” Morsi said in a speech during his inauguration ceremony at Cairo University on Saturday.
Earlier, Morsi took the oath and became Egypt’s first civilian president in a swearing-in ceremony at the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC).
The Muslim Brotherhood candidate was announced president on Sunday after a runoff with Ahmed Shafiq, who served as Mubarak's last prime minister.
