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.
