ate Sunday, Mohamed Morsi gave his first speech as Egypt's president-elect. A longtime member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi pledged that he would represent all Egyptians, saying "national unity is the only way to get Egypt out of this difficult crisis." On the diplomatic front, Morsi promised to "preserve all national and international agreements." The speech came just hours after Morsi was declared the winner of Egypt's historic presidential elections, and Egyptians rallied in Cairo's Tahrir Square and across the country to celebrate. Egypt's interim military rulers still retain much of the control over the country, having made an "11-th hour power grab" early last week following the elections.
