Tantawi Congratulates Mursi


Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi, who heads Egypt's Supreme Military Council, congratulated Mohammed Mursi, Sunday, on his win in the Egyptian presidential race, according to Egyptian media.

The military said last week that it will transfer power to civilian authorities in a few months, when elections are held to fill seats in Egypt's parliament made vacant by a recent court ruling against results of the last parliamentary elections.
