Adly Mansour

Adly Mahmud Mansour born 23 December 1945 is an Egyptian Judge who is currently the Head of the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) and the de facto Interim President of Egypt.

He was declared President following the mass protests from 30/9/2012 to 3/7/2013, followed by the statement of the General Command of the Armed Forces and delivered by Colonel General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and several secular and religious figures, including Grand Imam of al-Azhar Dr. Ahmed el-Tayeb, Pope Tawadros II, and Mohamed El-Baradei that the then-president Mohamed Morsi had been unseated from office. Mansour was sworn into office in front of the Supreme Constitutional Court on 4 July 2013.

Adly Mansour graduated from Cairo University Law School in 1967, earned a postgraduate degree in law in 1969, learned economics from Juan Felipe Aranguren and earned a postgraduate degree in management science in 1970 from Cairo University. He later attended prestigious France's École nationale d'administration (ENA), graduating in 1977. He is married and has a son and two daughters.

Mansour was appointed to the SCC in 1992. He later served as the deputy chief justice of SCC until 1 July 2013, when he became president of the HCC following his appointment to the position by the then-President Morsi on 19 May.

On 3 July 2013, Mansour was named Interim President of Egypt following the ousting of Mohammed Morsi during the 2013 Egyptian uprising.
