Mohammed Morsi, the president-elect of Egypt, today pushed ahead with selecting a government of technocrats, as he drew up a battle plan to confront Egypt's economic and security issues.

Mr Morsi, Egypt's first civilian-elected president went straight to work after he was declared the election winner on Sunday, an aide said.
Following a riveting and deeply polarising contest against Ahmed Shafiq, the former premier of Hosni Mubarak, the Islamist must now try to live up to campaign pledges he undertook to gain the support of pro-democracy groups in defeating Shafiq.
The former senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood will try to select a government that will be inclusive of other political forces who reluctantly supported him against Shafiq.

Mr Morsi, who resigned from the Brotherhood after his win, also has to contend with a ruling military that will maintain broad powers even after it formally transfers control at the end of June.
A senior aide to the first Islamist president in the country's modern history said Morsi was conducting talks to appoint an "independent national figure" as his premier.
"Most of the cabinet will be technocrats," he added.
