CAIRO, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Chairman of the Egyptian Supreme Constitutional Court Adli Mansour was sworn in as acting president of the country on Thursday.
Adly Mansour promised to hold "free, transparent and not rigged presidential and parliamentary elections in line with the true will of the nation." According to him, on June 30, in the squares of Cairo and other cities, “rallied all sectors of Egyptian society.” “I call on the Egyptian people to keep this national unity,” said Mansour.
Praising the role of young people and the armed forces in the events leading to the resignation of Mohammed Mursi, Mansour said that he considers his appointment as a "trust of the Egyptian in independent justice in a historic moment for the country."
According to Adly Mansour, the Egyptian people, who took part in the mass protests, returned the revolution back in the right direction.
He also noted the important role of the Egyptian media, which "made public all the negative aspects of the former regime /of Mohammed Mursi/".
Mansour was appointed chairman of the Supreme Constitutional Court before the "Revolution on June 30," but he couldn’t take office immediately because of the erupted unrest.
