Egypt's President Morsi Defends Record of First 100 Days

Saturday, 06 Oct 2012 04:41 PM

CAIRO — Egypt's new Islamist president has defended his record in his first 100 days in office while acknowledging that he has not fulfilled all of his promises and that much work lies ahead.

Mohammed Morsi, who is Egypt's first civilian president, promised during the campaign to solve some of the country's most pressing issues in his first three months in power. Critics say little has been achieved since he took office in June.

But in a nearly two-hour speech Saturday on the anniversary of Egypt's 1973 war with Israel, Morsi responded by touting what he said were his administration's accomplishments over its first 100 days, including fighting corruption and trying to restore security.

He also vowed to enact reforms to fulfill the goals of last year's uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.
