[29 June 2012] Morsi and the New Republic in Egypt - Middle East Today - English Egypt's first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, has begun working on forming a government he says will represent all Egyptians. Morsi moved into his new office in the presidential palace in Cairo on Monday while his supporters kept up their sit-in protest at Tahrir Square to pressure the ruling generals of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) to hand over full powers to him, AFP reported. SCAF took power in February 2011 after the Egyptians launched a revolution against the pro-Israeli regime in January, which eventually brought an end to the 30-year dictatorship of former President Hosni Mubarak. Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes out of just over 26 million, giving him 51.7 percent of the vote. Tens of thousands of Egyptians gathered in Cairo and across the country to celebrate Morsi's victory, chanting slogans like "God is greatest" and "Down with military rule."
