Egypts President Ousted By Millitary, Obama Reacts
The Egyptian Military has ousted the country’s first democratically elected president after weeks of protest.
According to Military General Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi “the military was following its “Historic Duty” to protect their country. Morsi was ousted after refusing to meet the demands to share power with opponents. In Morsi’s absence the country is being run by a Government of Technocrats
Egypt’s government has been in transition since the removal of former dictator Hosni Mubarak, which occurred after weeks of protest from citizens who were fed up with his brutal leadership tactics. Morsi a “Western Educated Islamic Leader” was the first democratically elected leader in the countries history.
No details have been released on Morsi’s current location.
After confirming the removal of Morsi in power, Barack Obama made his first public statement regarding Egypt’s government which remains in turmoil, saying that he was;
“Deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian armed forces to remove President Morsy and suspend the Egyptian constitution,” and that he has “directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the government of Egypt.”
President Obama is encouraging Egypt’s military to move quickly in re-establishing a democratic government.
