ElBaradei warns of 'electoral fraud'

Egyptian Nobel Peace laureate and former UN nuclear inspector Mohamed ElBaradei prays inside the Amr Ibn al-As mosque at the Religion Compound in the old city of Cairo on May 30, 2010.
Mohamed ElBaradei, the former IAEA chief, says his nomination for Egyptian presidency would bring about "electoral fraud" by the incumbent party NDP.

"In light of current circumstances, if I am nominated in the upcoming presidential elections, they will commit electoral fraud, giving me 35 per cent of the votes," DPA quoted ElBaradei as saying.

ElBaradei, who has been considered by the leftist opposition to run for president in the 2011 election, believes his nomination would give "the regime the only thing it is looking for, which is legitimacy."

ElBaradei made the remarks as elections for the Shura council, the Upper House of Parliament in Egypt, closed on Wednesday, with the ruling National Democratic Party having won 66 of the 74 seats, in a sweeping majority.

ElBaradei referred to the results of the Parliament elections as "evidence of the ruling regime's corruption."

The Egyptian Constitution requires ElBaradei to be a member of a licensed political party for a year before he can nominate for presidency.

ElBaradei has been head of the opposition party, National Coalition for Change, since his return to Egypt that was welcomed by thousands of opposition activists who wanted him to nominate for presidency. ... =351020502

Johann Von Goethe, once said, there are none more hopelessly enslaved, than those who falsely believe they are free.

"...Government is best which governs not at all; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have."
. For government is an expedient, by which men would fain succeed in letting one another alone; and, as has been said, when it is most expedient, the governed are most let alone by it. - Henry David Thoreau

I find all this to be indirect orientalism.
