Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi will be sworn in for a second term on 2 June, state-owned Egpytian daily Al-Ahram newspaper reports.

Mr Sisi won a second term with 97% of the vote during the March presidential election.

His swearing in will be the first held in parliament since former ruler Hosni Mubarak began his fifth consecutive term in 2005, Al-Ahram reports.

It will be attended by religious leaders, ambassadors, lawmakers and media personalities.

Many saw March’s election as a foregone conclusion, with Mr Sisi’s sole opponent a little-known figure who had previously supported his re-election.

Mr Sisi’s critics accuse him of being an authoritarian ruler who has crushed dissent. His allies say he has guaranteed stability in Egypt.
