Sisi to be sworn in as Egypt president Sunday

An Egyptian man holds up a portrait of Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as he celebrates the ex-army chief's election as president in Cairo's Tahrir Square on June 3, 2014Ex-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who ousted Egypt’s first freely-elected leader, will be sworn in as president on Sunday after he overwhelmingly won last week’s election, state media reported. The electoral commission on Tuesday said Sisi won 96.91 percent of the vote with a turnout of 47.5 percent, nearly one year after he overthrew Islamist Mohamed Morsi. His crushing victory over sole rival, leftist leader Hamdeen Sabbahi, had never been in doubt, with many lauding the retired field marshal as a hero for ending Morsi’s year of divisive rule 11 months ago. Sisi will be sworn in at 0730 GMT on Sunday before the general assembly of the Supreme Constitutional Court, state news agency MENA reported on Wednesday, quoting Maher Sami, deputy head of the court.
