The New Face of Egypt: Meet Adly Mahmud Mansour

After Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi had been ousted, Senior Egyptian jurist, Adly Mahmod Mansour has found himself in the spotlight as the interim president and the new face of Egypt’s government.

Mansour was announced as transitional president by Genral Abdel Fattah Sisi, Egyptian Army Chief, who stated that the military commanders had no interest in ruling the country.

Abdel Mansour, is temporarily replacing Morsi who was forced out of his office after his 48-hour ultimatum expired last night.

On July 1, Mansour assumed charge as the head of the High Constitutional Court (HCC) and just two days later, he found himself in the role of the country’s interim president to implement the army’s roadmap.

Born in 1945, Mansour received a licence to practise law from the Cairo University in 1967 and joined the state council in 1970, rising in the ranks until he was appointed deputy president of the HCC in 1992.

He was appointed as its president in May 2013 and took up his post on July 1 following retirement of justice Maher El-Beheiry.

Mansour was appointed in line with a new 2011 law, which stipulated that HCC heads should be appointed from within the court system. For 20 years, the HCC head was chosen from outside the constitutional court, Ahram online reported.

Cairo-born Mansour helped draft the supervision law for the presidential elections that brought Morsi to power in 2012, which included setting a legal timeframe for electoral campaigning.
