Egypt president: Brotherhood's fate with judiciary
- Photos (1)
CAIRO -- Egypt's interim president has defended the military's ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, saying he failed to deliver on campaign promises and was forced out by the will of people who elected him and not by a coup.
In his first interview since taking office after Morsi's July 4 ouster, Adly Mansour said a return to democratic rule, restoring security and improving the country's ailing economy are his government's top priorities.
Speaking on Egyptian state television in a pre-recorded interview late Tuesday, Mansour also said that the fate of the ousted president's Muslim Brotherhood group was in the hands of the judiciary.
He also defended reinstating emergency rule, which gives authorities sweeping powers to arrest, and said the country is defending itself against acts of terrorism by extremists.
