Egypt's President: Abdel Fattah al-Sisi


Sisi was sworn into office on Sunday at Cairo’s Supreme Constitutional Court as he sat next to former interim President Adly Mansour in front of court officials.

Among those present at the ceremony was al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed El-Tayyeb, Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II, interim Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab and other ministers, along with former Prime Ministers Hazem al-Beblawy and Kamal al-Ganzouri. Following the swearing-in ceremony, Sisi made his way to the presidential palace.
After being sworn in as the sixth president of Egypt, Sisi then headed to Ittihadiya Palace in Cairo, where state TV broadcast images of foreign heads of state arriving at the ceremony.

Among the top Gulf officials attending the Ittihadiya celebrations are Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah, Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud and Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan. Monarchs of Bahrain and Jordan as well as the Palestinian, Eritrean and Somali presidents are expected to attend too.
