Adly Mansour ble torsdag innsatt som Egypts midlertidige president. Muhamed ElBaradei blir midlertidig statsminister.
Muhamed Morsi sitter innesperret siden han nektet å gå frivillig.
Bare rent utseendemessig kan man slutte seg til at Mansour er en helt annen type enn den sure Morsi med pekefingeren.
Mr. Mansour swore his oath hours after Egyptian security forces moved briskly to arrest and detain hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood leaders—the powerful Islamist organization that has dominated Egyptian elections over the past two years.
Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s ousted president, was reportedly in police custody on Thursday morning after he refused to step down from his post on the orders of Gen. Abdel Fattah Al Sisi on Wednesday night.
Mr. Mansour took two oaths on Thursday morning: The first made him chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court and the second elevated him to the presidency.
Mr. Mansour has been the head of Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court since Monday, but the court’s own swearing-in ceremony was delayed for several days due to massive street protests against Mr. Morsi’s rule.
