I’ll be president for all Egyptians – Morsi

Mohammed Morsi

 Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi, the first Islamist to be elected to the presidency, said on Sunday he will be a leader “for all Egyptians.”
“I will be a president for all Egyptians,” Morsi said just hours after he was declared president following a deeply divisive race against Ahmed Shafiq, the last premier to serve under ousted president Hosni Mubarak.
Morsi also pledged  to honour international treaties, say wants peace but insisted that the revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak would continue until its goals were met, in his first address after being declared the country’s next leader.
“The revolution continues, until all its demands are met,” he said in a speech broadcast live on state television, hours after the election commission declared him the winner of this month’s run-off vote.
