“In the end, Egyptians, generally speaking, would like Morsi to succeed in his tough mission. The burden is huge and challenges enormous. He can achieve success if he puts Egypt and Egyptians first in all his policies. His first speech is promising and the next few months will reveal if he is up to that promise. It should be noted that he managed to overcome the dilemma of swearing in before the Supreme Constitutional Court. He went to Tahrir Square, then the Supreme Constitutional Court, and then to Cairo University in order to please everyone. It was a smart move to avoid confrontation with SCAF, on the one side, and revolutionary groups on the other. Is he able to replicate the same strategy in regard to other controversial issues?”
Many are anxious to see how Morsi performs in his first few days in office and so far there have been no real criticisms. He will be looking to increase his support across Egypt though as he is only got about 25% of the vote when turnout is considered.
