Sunday، 08 June 2014 - 12:00 AM
I am happy for you for having achieved your national will in a civilized and democratic manner and I am looking forward to being worthy of the trust you have put on my shoulders.
What I have obtained today, at this critical and decisive moment in the history of this country, in this presidential elections, the second landmark of the roadmap to the future over which Egyptian political forces have agreed, is a deserved result of the sacrifices you have made in two glorious revolutions, those of January 25, 2011 and June 30, 2013; the two revolutions which have called for a decent living, freedom and dignity.
I am thankful to Egypt's judges, the guardians of justice, who supervised in full honesty and transparency the entire elections process. I also extend my gratitude and appreciation to the Armed and Police Forces, our country's wings of safety, for the enormous efforts exerted to secure the elections efficiently and resolutely. I am also thankful to the media for documenting the process and allowing our citizens full access to and knowledge of the events minute by minute.
I extend special thanks to presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabahi, for providing a serious opportunity of competition in the elections. To him and to all Egyptians, I say, they are urged to continue their efforts in the future stage of building and construction.
My confidence in the Almighty is absolute as is my trust in your awareness of the threats posed to the country. So let us work together in good faith, fully determined to succeed seeking to advance our country and serve the people's interest. At this point, I once again express my gratitude, appreciation and respect to all of you. May God Protect Egypt and Safeguard its people. And long live Egypt.
May God's Peace and Blessings be upon you.
