Egyptian president-elect seeks to reassure Christians on Islamic control

Catholic World News - June 27, 2012

Egypt's newly elected president, Mohammed Morsi, met on June 26 with a group of Catholic leaders, seeking to reassure them that Christians will not suffer under his leadership. He had met with a Coptic Orthodox delegation the previous day.

Morsi, who won a majority of the vote in Egypt's June 23 presidential election, was the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood. His victory raises grave concerns among the Christian minority. "We are worried about the Islamization of Egyptian society," said Father Rafic Greiche, a spokesman for the Catholic Church.
