Supporters and opponents of Egypt\'s deposed President Mohamed Morsi have remained on the streets, holding protests as tensions continue to rise across the country. Morsi\'s supporters on Sunday held marches to Rabia al-Adawiya Square and Al-Nahda Square close to Cairo University, demanding his return to power. Anti-Morsi demonstrators gathered in Cairo\'s iconic Liberation Square and around the presidential palace. On July 3, General Sisi announced that President Morsi was no longer in office. The chief justice of Egypt\'s Supreme Constitutional Court, Adli Mansour, was sworn in as interim president of Egypt on July 4. Strong Egypt Party leader Abdel Moneim Abul Fotouh has called on the interim president to step down. Growing differences among political parties have delayed the nomination of an interim prime minister in the North African country. In this edition of The Debate we take a look at the latest twists and turns out of Egypt.
