CAIRO (AP) - An aide to Egypt's president-elect says Islamist Mohammed Morsi has moved into the office once occupied by ousted leader Hosni Mubarak and has started consultations on forming his team and a new government.
 
    
Yasser Ali, a spokesman for the presidential campaign, said the 60-year-old Morsi arrived at the presidential office on Monday for official meetings and consultations.
 
    
On Sunday, Morsi was declared winner of Egypt's first presidential runoff following a tight race with Mubarak's last Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq. The campaigns deeply polarized the country.
 
    
Morsi has said that forming a national coalition government and a widely representative presidential team was a priority. 
 
    
Ali anticipates the current military-backed government could remain in a caretaker role for a while. He says forming a new one "will take time."
