Morsi, who defeated his rival, former Mubarak premier Ahmed Shafiq, with 51.7 per cent of the vote, quickly moved to allay domestic and international concerns over the Islamists' victory in the Arab world's most populous country.

After being announced as the winner on Sunday, Morsi in a speech vowed to be president to all Egyptians and appealed for national unity.
