As the newly elected President Mohammed Morsi just moved into office on Monday after the announcement on Sunday of the long-delayed results of the presidential elections, Egyptian activists have already created a website which aims to assess the performance of President-elect Morsi during the first 100 days of his term.
The creators of “MorsiMeter” say the website is an “attempt to document and monitor the performance” of Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi. The newly created site will assess whether Morsi is respecting the promises he made during the presidential campaign such as restoring security, improving police payments, and solving the fuel, housing and unemployment crises.
Created on Sunday night, the Twitter account linked to the website has more than 7,000 followers.
Muslim Brotherhood backed presidential candidate Mohammed Morsi beat former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq in Egypt’s first presidential elections since the fall of Hosni Mubarak.
Last week, the Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission delayed the results of Egypt’s presidential elections, which were eventually announced on Sunday, after both parties, Mohamed Morsi and Egypt's former PM Ahmed Shafiq, complained of fraud during the voting process.
Speaking on Egyptian television after the announcement of the results on Sunday evening, the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi proclaimed himself a leader "for all Egyptians".
In his speech, Morsi also vowed to "protect the rights of women and children", as well as Copts, Egypt's Christian community, and Muslims alike. "I tell everybody in this memorable day that because of your choice, your will and after God's favour, I am a president for all Egyptians," Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi continued.
