One year after his inauguration, Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammad Morsi is now being referred to as Egypt’s former president. A petition campaign called Tamarrod was instrumental in catalyzing the 30 June protests. Tamarrod's campaign was initiated on 28 April 2013 by a group of young people whose goal was to remove President Morsi because they believed that he had failed to fulfill the mandate given to him by the people.
On 30 June 2013, over fifteen million Egyptians took to the streets to call for President Mosi’s resignation. The anti-Morsi protests continue in several Egyptian cities, the protestor's demands developing as Egypt's Defence minister Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi announced the ousting of president Mohammad Morsi, the temporary suspension of Egypt's constitution, and the creation of a caretaker government headed by the Chief Justice of the Egyptian Supreme Constitutional Court, Adly Mansour, who will set a date for early presidential elections. President Morsi and his supporters have announced the actions of the Egyptian military to be a coup d'état against a democratically elected president. His opponents, however, say Mr. Morsi betrayed the aspirations of the majority of Egyptians and protestors who worked to depose Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
