Amanpour asked him if he will run for Egyptian presidency and he answered that he does rule out run for Egyptian presidency in 2011 making it clear that he will only consider it if there is a free and fair election and that is a question mark still in Egypt.
A big question mark indeed , he is still using diplomacy but may be this time his answer was more specific , more changeling too to Mubarak and son if I may say. We all know that it will be hardly to have free elections if we do not have a complete and honest judicial supervision or international supervision which by the way was requested by the Egyptian campaign against succession lately.
I really love the fact his indirect statement that we do not have real free democratic elections in Egypt. Man I know how the official media will receive this.
ElBaradei with these statements has renewed the debate and this is a good thing because it shows that from 79,999,999 million Egyptians there are other people than Gamal Mubarak who can actually rule this country.
I think Washington is regarding ElBaradei as a potential candidate ,the man has two things Gamal do not have : Political experience and popularity in the country just like Amr Moussa.
BY the way I am turning to find the complete Amanpour’s interview online but I have not been so lucky up till now. All what I find is that part concerning Iran.
