Is Morsi Still President? Commander Al-Sissi Says No

According to Egyptian Military Commander Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Mohammed Morsi is no longer the President of Egypt. He broadcast his announcement over Tahrir Square to the thousands of protesters gathered there. Morsi himself has not relinquished power, but as far as the military and many Egyptians are concerned he is no longer president. 

An NYTimes liveblogger laid out al-Sisi's post-Morsi plan. Though the next steps are obvious, al-Sisi did not give a concrete time line for the transitional government. One thing is for sure though, Egypt's constitution has been dissolved.
