President of Egypt from 4 July 2013 to 8 June 2014 following the 2013
Egyptian coup d\'état by the military which deposed President Mohamed
Morsi . Several secular and religious figures, such as the Grand Imam
of al-Azhar (
Ahmed el-Tayeb ), the Coptic Pope (Tawadros II ), and
Mohamed ElBaradei supported the coup against President Morsi and the
military appointed Mansour interim-president until an election could
take place. Morsi refused to acknowledge his removal as valid and
continued to maintain that only he could be considered the legitimate
President of Egypt. Mansour was sworn into office in front of the
Supreme Constitutional Court on 4 July 2013.
