Egypt: Adli Mansour Statue to Be Erected in Monofeya

Cairo — A new statue to honor Adli Mansour will be erected in a square in Monofeya governorate where the former interim president was raised, Monofeya's governor Ahmed Fawzy has said.

The statue is to honor the efforts Mansour exerted during the year in which he ruled the country, he said.

Mansour, who was the head of the Constitutional Court until July, handed over power to elected President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi this Sunday.

Sisi, who served as Egypt's defense minister until earlier this year, gained wide popularity last year following the ousting of President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood.
