CIA world fact book online, Nov. 30, 2017: Egypt (Egyptian opposition groups led demonstrations and labor strikes countrywide, culminating in President Hosni Mubarak's ouster in 2011. Egypt's military assumed national leadership until a new parliament was in place in early 2012; later that same year, Mohammed Morsi won the presidential election. Following often violent protests throughout the spring of 2013 against Morsi's government and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian Armed Forces intervened and removed Morsi from power in July 2013 and replaced him with interim president Adly Mansour.
