President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi declared the transition complete in a 32-minute address to parliament on Saturday, while noting that Egypt is still struggling to rebuild its economy and confront Islamic extremists.
Brig. Gen. Mohammed Samir said that four assault boats were destroyed and that 32 attackers were arrested.
El-Sissi said he had always said he will not interfere in judicial affairs, and would respect the courts’ independence.
El-Sissi’s nationwide turnout was around 44 percent, well below the nearly 52 percent won by Morsi in June 2012.
El-Sissi’s campaign said turnout nationwide was around 44 percent, even after voting was extended for a third day on Wednesday.
