BBC view (Dr Eman Altahawy, Ismailia)
I work as a cardiology specialist in Ismailia. I voted for Dr Mursi because he has the support of a large political party and he will keep the revolution alive.
Behinds the scenes I know he will work hard to establish national unity, overcome the divisions and forge new links with non-religious parties such as Independents, leftists and secular parties.
We have had six decades of authoritarian rule and it is incredibly to realise all Egyptians are now living in a democracy that some people in western societies take for granted.
Once in government Dr Mursi can begin the process of reconciliation. More importantly I hope he will champion healthcare reform.
It is a basic need which has been overlooked for decades.
As doctor I'm always concerned about replenishing medical stocks, providing good treatment to people from lower income groups and retaining qualified medical staff who may be tempted to leave for better opportunities in other countries.
Although Dr Mursi has a small mandate, nearly half the electorate abstained or voted for the opposition, when he takes office he needs to represent the entire population not just his supporters.
I think our country has turned a corner today.
