TUNIS - The party of Tunisia's president condemned on Thursday the Egyptian military's overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi as a blow to democracy, in the first public reaction to events in Cairo from the cradle of the 'Arab Spring' movement.

The head of Egypt's Constitutional Court, Adli Mansour, was sworn in as interim head of state of the Arab world's most populous nation earlier on Thursday, a day after the Islamist president's dramatic removal from power.

"The party condemns the military coup against the democratic process," said Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki's secularist party, the Congress for the Republic, in a statement.

"We view what the leadership of the army has done as a setback on the path of the Egyptian revolution and an attempt to reinstall the old regime," it said.
