Egypt’s President-Elect to Speak

Egypt’s president-elect is expected to speak Friday to thousands of people who have gathered or are heading to Cairo’s Tahrir Square to protest the military’s hold on power. Mohamed Morsi won the first election since former dictator Hosni Mubarak was forced out, and just days later the ruling military council took measures to reduce his powers. His speech in Tahrir Square is widely seen as his acknowledgment of the revolutionary movement that brought down Mubarak.
