Brotherhood's Mursi sworn in as Egyptian president

30 June 2012 Last updated at 12:27 ET

Mohammed Mursi has been sworn in as Egypt's first civilian, democratically elected president at a historic ceremony in Cairo.

Hours after the ceremony, he was saluted by Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, leader of the military council which is handing over power.

Mr Mursi has promised to restore the parliament dissolved by the military.

In a speech at Cairo University, the Muslim Brotherhood politician said the army must respect the people's will.

1. I think this will be a decent outcome.

At least, the army held back from the slaughter seen in other places, during the revolution.

2. That's my take as well, given my admittedly limited knowledge of all the background issues.
