ElBaradei mulls alliance with conservative Muslim Brotherhood
Cairo: Mohammed ElBaradei, a leading
campaigner for democratic reform in Egypt, today indicated a
possible partnership with the conservative Muslim Brotherhood
in order to bring changes in the country.
The former chief of the UN nuclear watchdog said his
National Association for Change was considering to join hands
with the Muslim Brotherhood - Egypt's strongest opposition
force - to encourage political reform in the country.
Terming the recent parliamentary elections as a
"farce", the Nobel Peace Prize laureate called for a boycott
of next year's presidential poll.
He also warned that there could be "violence" if the
government tried to repress pro-reform demonstrations. The
authorities must understand that "it is our right to march in
peaceful demonstrations to demand change", ElBaradei said in a
video posted on the social network site Facebook.
