CAIRO — Egypt's new president has told Egyptians it is time to build a more stable future and called on them to work hard so that their rights and freedoms may grow.
Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, a former military chief who ousted Egypt's first freely elected leader last July, was addressing a ceremony held at a presidential palace in Cairo hours after he was sworn in Sunday by the Supreme Constitutional Court.
El-Sissi also thanked the outgoing interim president, career judge Adly Mansour.
Both men later signed the "handover of power document" in the presence of dozens of local and foreign dignitaries.
"Let us differ for the sake of our nation and not over it, and in a unifying national march in which every party listens to the other," el-Sissi said.
