Detained former president Mohamed Morsy is preparing a “surprise” for Egyptians, hours after the general who ousted him last year was declared president, his son, Omar, said Tuesday.
“The kidnapped, legitimate president is preparing a surprise for you within hours,” Omar Morsy posted on Facebook, shortly after the Presidential Elections Commission declared former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as the winner of the three-day elections that ended 28 May.
Sisi removed Morsy last year following mass protests. The former president stands trial over charges of murder and espionage.
