Albaradei currently has the backing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the largest opposition bloc in Egyptian society.
Exactly, that is why he should go back to Vienna !. He doesn't know what he is doing.

This man who has never been in charge of his previous position and taking orders from others to say what they want, cannot lead a country in the size and weight of Egypt.

Amr Moussa.....the one and only who can handle Egypt in the time being.

He knows all internal and external files of the company and very well respected by the people of Egypt.

I agree El Baradei is a very bad choice, he hardly lived in Egypt, he's soft handed and not a decision maker, it's not easy to rule 80 million Egyptians, what's happening now is maximum 1% of what this nation can actually do.

When asked about rumours that he might run for Presidency in 2011, Amr Moussa did not deny his intention to run for office or rule it out, leaving the door open to speculations. He argued that "It's the right of every citizen that has the capacity and efficiency to aspire to any political office that would allow him to contribute to the service of his nation".[3] He further stated to the press that the qualities required to be the President of Egypt also apply to Gamal Mubarak, son of the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.[4] He also expressed appreciation "for the confidence expressed by many people when they talk about his candidacy for the presidency and that the message reached him.".[5]
Amr Moussa held talks with Mohamed Elbaradei after his return to Egypt. Many[who?] speculate that this meeting was held to discuss Constitutional reforms that will allow transparency in the election process as well as lifting restrictions on independent candidates.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

Amr Moussa....the guy who remained seated when Erdogan had the clash last year in Davos with Perez about Gaza and left the stage. Shame on him as representative of the arab league. At the end, egyptians must make the choice and vote.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

I think that your love for your country of birth is sincere; I like that.
I hope the Egyptians get rid of that fat bastard -he's 82 for God's sake- and replace with a free & democratic government that you elect regardless of what anybody else wants...

This is a historic moment for the Egyptian people! You shall prevail!

Thank you for the sincere words, I'm currently looking for flights to head back and take over my national duty as much as I can, let Mubarak face more and more Egyptians till he falls whatever it's going to take to do achieve that

But he will have the honour of ruling a great civilisation forward, and more honour being elected by the people the entire world is watching today on the streets, we will never let down a president we chose.

If we are able to bring the tyrant Mubarak down, we can bring anyone up.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

For democratic revolution to be really effective in arabic countries there are 2 conditions to be met (after mmodification of constitution):
- no legal party can claim to be religious (muslim, christian, jewish, what ever)
- proportional representation should be mandatory for parliamentary elections

do you know their political program or is it just from hearsay?
I need to have a closer look at it before labeling them as undemocratic (democracy has also a lot of local variations).

If the people elect them in free transparent elections, then yes. At least I do.

Re: Egypt- "Jan25_ Day of revolution"

Getting elected doesn't make one democratic - allowing free elections regularly is (a necessary, but not complete) condition.

As the joke goes -
Q: what is an Islamist democracy ?
A: one man, one vote, once.

So even though a party has terrorist tendencies, you still see it as democratic ?

Anyway, I'd hardly call 'a revolution' what's happeninig in Egypt...a pathetic attempt maybe !

Can you please point out the "terrorist tendencies" this party has?

Remember, one man's terrorist is another man's hero...Anti-apartheid protesters were also called "terrorists". Today, Mandela is a world renowned hero...you get the drift right?
