Morsi to take oath today
Egypt's president-elect Mohamed Morsi will be sworn in today before the Constitutional Court, the presidency announced after differences with the army over the transfer of power.
Morsi "will go at 11:00am Saturday to the Constitutional Court to take the oath before the Court's general assembly,” said a statement released late Thursday by the official MENA news agency.
By agreeing to be sworn in by the Constitutional Court, Morsi is effectively acknowledging the court's decision to dissolve parliament.
Egypt's president traditionally takes the oath in parliament, but the country's top court has ordered the disbanding of the Islamist-dominated legislature.
Egypt's first civilian president, and the first elected since an uprising ousted president Hosni Mubarak last year, still has to contend with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
