Following several days of mass protests that had gripped the country on a national level, the Egyptian army has ousted the country\'s first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi in a move described by the ousted president as a full military coup. That was the final decision after army\'s 48-hour ultimatum for political factions to reach an agreement came to an end. General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, Head of Egypt\'s Armed Forces accompanied with religious authorities as well as political figures announced the decision and presented a political roadmap for the transition period. Based on the army\'s roadmap, the much disputed constitution has been suspended temporarily and Adly Mansour, the head country\'s Supreme Constitutional Court has been named as the acting president until early elections are held.
