Sisi Sworn in as President As Doubts over Democracy Continue

Egypt’s former defense minister Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi was officially sworn in as President on Sunday, after winning by a landslide 96% vote in last month's elections. He will rule for a four-year term.

Testimony from European Union (EU) and African Union (AU) supporters bolstered a sense of mistrust in the election results, with many saying the vote had been rigged from the outset.
