Mohamed Morsi (Arabic: محمد محمد مرسى عيسى العياط, ALA-LC: Muḥammad Muḥammad Mursī ‘Īsá al-‘Ayyāṭ ; born 8 August 1951) is an Egyptian politician. He became the fifth President of Egypt on 30 June 2012. On 3 July 2012, the Egyptian defense minister Abdul Fatah Khalil Al-Sisi declared that Morsi would no longer be president, after many people who wanted him to resign began protesting.
On 16 May 2015, he was sentenced to death by an Egyptian court for passing state secrets.
In 2016 a higher court overturned the death penalty, pending another trial.
