Egypt's President-elect Mohamed Mursi will takes his oath on today, a week after his victory in a disputed poll was confirmed.
Mursi is to be sworn in officially at 11 a.m. (0900 GMT) by the constitutional court, rather than by parliament as is usual.
The court dissolved the Islamist-dominated lower house this month in one of several measures intended to entrench military influence over Egypt long after Mursi assumes the presidency.
Muslim Brotherhood candidate becomes Egypt's first democratically-elected president in decades. He said he carries a "message of peace".
Egypt will today release results from their much disputed presidential elections. Both Mohamed Morsi and Ahmed Shafik have claimed victory
Democracy, they say, is messy. But an attempted transition to civilian rule after a 30 year dictatorship was always going to be difficult.
