The supreme justice of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court has been sworn in as the nation’s interim president, replacing the Islamist Mohamed Morsi  who was ousted by the military.
Adly Mansour was sworn in Thursday at the Constitutional Court in a ceremony broadcast live on state television.
According to military decree, Mansour will serve as Egypt’s interim leader until a new president is elected. A date for that vote has yet to be set.
Mansour said he planned to hold new elections, but did not specify when.
