Maher El-Beheiry (Arabic: ماهر البحيري‎‎) was President of the Supreme Constitutional Court of Egypt. He succeeded Farouk Sultan as president of the court on 1 July 2012.[2] He served for a year, until 1 July 2013, when he was succeeded by Adly Mansour.[1][3] For a time during the 2013 Egyptian coup d'état, some organizations reported El-Beheiry as having been selected for the position of acting President of Egypt.[4] However, these reports were incorrect: Mansour, the current court president, was selected as acting president.
