#AceWorldNews – CAIRO – June 08 – Ex-army chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has been sworn in as Egypt’s new president after a landslide win in May elections.
He said his election was “a democratic, peaceful handover of power” that represented “a historic moment and turning point” for the nation.
Security forces were deployed at key locations around the capital Cairo for the ceremony at the Supreme Constitutional Court.
The retired field marshal overthrew President Mohammed Morsi last July.
He has since been pursuing a crackdown on Mr Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, which urged a boycott of the elections.
