Egypt Student Union: Morsi Still President; We Reject Military Coup
The Egyptian Student Union (ESU)’s Executive Office announced full support for the constitutional and electoral legitimacy of President Mohamed Morsi, stressing that what the Military Council has done is a de facto coup against the will of the Egyptian people.
From the main stage in Rabaa Al-Adaweya Square, Ahmed Al-Baqri, ESU vice-president, said: "The ESU’s Executive Office met today to discuss support for President Morsi. The result was 7 against two in favor of supporting the President and rejecting the ruinous coup. The Executive Office will issue a statement Monday to express support for the elected President Morsi".
The ESU vice-president then chanted, "The students said it loud and clear.. Morsi is President of the Republic".
