Cairo — Leading Egyptian reform advocate Mohammed ElBaradei has been sworn-in as the country's interim vice president.

ElBaradei was sworn-in Sunday by interim President Adly Mansour, as Egypt's new leadership pushes ahead with a transition following the military's ouster of President Mohammed Morsi nearly two weeks ago.

Egypt's new vice president is a former diplomat and Nobel laureate who was heading the main liberal opposition coalition that stood with Defence Secretary General Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi as he announced Morsi's ouster amid massive protests against his rule.

Thousands of Morsi's supporters are protesting his removal from power and the military-backed timeline for transition.
