An interim government of national reconciliation is being formed in cooperation with Egypt’s al-Azhar University of Islamic Studies, and Pope Theodorus II of the Coptic Christian Church. The Defense Minister stated that the interim government will be led by Chief Justice Adly Mansour of the Constitutional Court, who will be sworn by the General Assembly of the Court on July 4th. The military stated they expect a broader coalition than the ousted Muslim Brotherhood will be able to address the demands of public protests.
CNN reported on July 3rd that President Obama urged the Egyptian military to hand full control back to a democratically elected civilian government and abstain from arresting President Morsi or his supporters. He also said the United States was reviewing the implications of the coup for its assistance to Egypt.
