Ex-UN Nuclear Chief sets conditions for Egypt presidency run


Former nuclear watchdog head Mohamed ElBaradei, tipped as a possible opposition Egyptian presidential contender, said a decision on entering the 2011 race would be contingent on guarantees of a fair election.

He said he wanted judicial supervision of the vote, U.N. monitoring and equal coverage for all candidates by state media.

“This will send a clear message to the world that there is true reform and change in Egypt,” he said, adding he wanted a national consensus in favour of his candidacy before deciding.
