Leading Egyptian reform advocate Mohamed ElBaradei has been sworn-in as the country’s interim Vice-President.

Mr. ElBaradei was sworn-in on Sunday by interim President Adly Mansour, as Egypt’s new leadership pushes ahead with a transition following the military’s ouster of President Mohammed Morsy nearly two weeks ago.

Egypt’s new Vice-President is a former diplomat and Nobel laureate who was heading the main liberal opposition coalition that stood with Defence Secretary Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi as he announced Mr. Morsy’s ouster amid massive protests against his rule.

Thousands of Mr. Morsy’s supporters are protesting his removal from power and the military-backed timeline for transition.
