Selon le président du parti Doustour, ElBaradei estime que son rôle politique est terminé

Selon le président du parti Doustour, ElBaradei estime que son rôle politique est terminé | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

By MOSTAFA ABDEL TAWAB

CAIRO: Dostor Party Chairman Sayed Al-Masry told Youm7 Wednesday that Mohamed ElBaradei, the party’s founder and former deputy of Prime Minister, believes that his political role in Egypt is over.

Masry said ElBaradei has no contact with the party during the last period, and refuses to interfere with the party’s issues as well as rejecting any roles inside the party. He added that the former IAEA head refuses to participate or comment on the Egyptian political scene.

ElBaradei resigned from his post as deputy prime minister on Aug. 14, 2013, following the deadly dispersal of pro-Mohamed Morsi sit-ins in Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda square by police, which left hundreds dead.

Masry pointed out that ElBaradei, who is currently in Vienna, has no plans to return to Egypt at the moment as he prefers to stay out of the current scene since his resignation.

ElBaradei: Pillars for Egypt's progress

ElBaradei: Pillars for Egypt's progress | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Opposition Leader Mohamed ElBaradei says the solution for Egypt's terrible shape is a political one, not a military one.

ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, tells CNN's John Defterios that Egypt must start political reconciliation to stop the social unrest and violence in the country.

The North African state needs support from the International Monetary Fund to "jump start" the economy, according to ElBaradei.

ElBaradei praises role of Egypt women in adopting UN declaration against violence

ElBaradei praises role of Egypt women in adopting UN declaration against violence | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

obel Laureate and Coordinator of the National Salvation Front Mohamed ElBaradei praised on Saturday the role of the Head of Egypt's National Council for Women Mervat Al-Talwi in adopting the declaration of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

"Violence against women cannot be justified by virtue of customs, traditions or religion," the former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency posted on his Twitter account.

Head of the Dostour Party acknowledged the efforts pursued by Talawi and Egyptian to have the declaration adopted by consensus.

ElBaradei added that the "adoption by consensus, including Arab and Muslim states, of the declaration on violence against women is now a challenge to put words into action."

Meanwhile, Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has warned against this declaration saying, "This document violates all the fundamentals of Islamic Sharia (law), as it grants girls sexual freedom, as well as the freedom to choose their sexual orientation and their sexual partner, in addition to raising the age of marriage."

ElBaradei warns of impending disaster due to Morsi’s stubbornness

ElBaradei warns of impending disaster due to Morsi’s stubbornness | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Basil El-Dabh | Daily news Egypt

 

Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei blamed the ruling government for growing divisions in the country.

“The continuation of the current system means more failure,” said ElBaradei in a Tuesday night interview on the CBC television channel. “I spoke with [President Mohamed] Morsi two months ago and asked him to be a president for all Egyptians, but then he issued the [22 November] constitutional declaration,” the Al-Dostour Party leader added.

ElBaradei pointed to incidents of violence and torture by the police, corruption, and unreformed wage policy as “practices of the former regime”.

The National Salvation Front (NSF) leader strongly criticised the Morsi administration, saying it lacked vision and understanding.

ElBaradei, who announced his intention to run for president after the revolution but decided to withdraw, said he did not regret his decision. “I don’t regret not entering the presidential elections. I couldn’t enter elections when there wasn’t a constitution,” he said.

ElBaradei wonders if Egypt's regime is in coma | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

 

Nobel Laureate and prominent opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei criticized Egypt’s administration on his official Twitter account on Wednesday.

“Over 500 injured in one day. Regime seems to be in a coma,” the former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency posted.

In another Tweet in Arabic, ElBaradei wondered, “Violence is escalating everywhere with around 500 injured in one day without any attempts by the regime for dialogue. Is there still a president and government?”

On a different subject, he congratulated university students for their efforts in student union elections, insisting, “Your strength is in your unity.”

ElBaradei warns of chaos if Egypt polls go ahead

ElBaradei warns of chaos if Egypt polls go ahead | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Opposition leader warns upcoming parliamentary polls could be road to total chaos, instability because torture, abductions, lack of social justice are still rife.

 

Egyptian opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei warned of chaos in the troubled nation if parliamentary polls go ahead in April, as protesters demonstrated in Cairo against Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

 

ElBaradei, a leading figure in the National Salvation Front (NSF) coalition, told the BBC that torture, abductions and a lack of social justice were still blighting Egyptian society.

 

To press ahead in those circumstances risked setting the country on a "road to total chaos and instability," he added.

 

"We need to send a message loud and clear to the people here and outside of Egypt that this is not a democracy, that we have not participated in an uprising two years ago to end up with a recycling of the (Hosni) Mubarak regime."

 

"I Called for parliamentary election boycott in 2010 to expose sham democracy. Today I repeat my call, will not be part of an act of deception," he posted on his Twitter account.

Egypte : ElBaradei appelle à boycotter les législatives | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

L'une des figures de proue de l'opposition égyptienne, Mohamed ElBaradei, a appelé samedi 23 février à boycotter les élections législatives prévues à partir d'avril. "[J'ai] appelé au boycott des élections législatives en 2010 pour démontrer l'imposture de la démocratie. Aujourd'hui, je répète mon appel, [je ne ferai] pas partie de cette supercherie", affirme ElBaradei sur son compte Twitter

 

Vendredi, plusieurs mouvements de l'opposition avaient déploré que le président Mohammed Morsi ait convoqué des élections en pleine crise politique et menacé de les boycotter. Ils l'ont accusé de vouloir attiser les tensions entre libéraux et islamistes, qui ont remporté haut la main tous les scrutins depuis la "révolution du Nil". Des responsables du Front du salut national (FSN) ont indiqué qu'ils devaient encore se mettre d'accord sur une éventuelle décision de boycott. "Il y a un groupe important qui veut un boycott, mais [cette question] n'a pas encore fait l'objet de discussions", a ainsi déclaré l'ancien ministre des affaires étrangères, Amr Moussa.

ElBaradei condemns fatwa approving murder of NSF members

ElBaradei condemns fatwa approving murder of NSF members | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Political powerhouse Mohamed ElBaradei denounced a fatwa Wednesday that authorized the murder of National Salvation Front members.

The NSF leader and Dostour Party head said the fatwa issued by Mahmoud Shaaban, a professor of religious rhetoric at Al-Azhar University, was an attempt to incite violence.    

“When such people incite killing in the name of religion without being arrested, we can kiss the regime goodbye,” tweeted ElBaradei. “How many crimes were committed against and in the name of Islam.”

Shaaban based his fatwa on a Hadith that says: He who swore allegiance to an imam and gave him his hand and the fruit of his heart shall obey him, and he who disputes him shall have his neck smitten. (Egypt independent)

“Youth still tortured and killed in quest for human dignity. Regime oblivious that violence begets violence and brutality is sure to backfire,” the former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency said. 

Two men were announced dead on Monday morning, raising the death toll in a wave of violence that erupted in light of demonstrations to commemorate the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

Attorney of Mohamed al-Gendy, who was announced dead this morning, said the 28-year-old was “tortured to death” during his 3-day abduction while an activist was killed in Friday demonstrations by the presidential palace.

Katatni insisted in the press conference that all topics can be discussed, adding that the national dialogue must have bases and guarantees.

Erian accuses ElBaradei of treason

Erian accuses ElBaradei of treason | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Deputy Freedom and Justice Party chairman Essam al-Erian has accused leading opposition figure and former UN International Atomic Energy Agency head Mohamed ElBaradei of treason for allegedly approving the US invasion of Iraq.

Erian claimed in a Facebook post that ElBaradei could potentially stand trial before the International Criminal Court if the international justice system is overhauled because he “gave grounds for the US invasion of Iraq,” adding that ElBaradei had been "a representative for the United States and Europe rather than being backed by his homeland, Egypt” for 12 years. 

"Nineteen days after the declaration of war and the beginning of the invasion, Baghdad fell under the wheels of US and allies’ tanks. The war was the product of a big lie promoted by immoral media about Iraq’s possession of mass destruction weapons and links to Al-Qaeda,” Erian wrote.

In a statement the party issued late on Saturday, it stated it was freezing all its invitations and initiatives for dialogue with all political forces and figures, "who sponsor violence, terrorism and killing."

Al-Wasat announced it had seen pictures of opposition party members and supporters throwing Molotov cocktails and carrying out other forms of violent acts from within their headquarters, "which should be the function and participation for national political affairs and not for criminal acts," they admonished. 

Moreover, they are considering petitioning the Nobel Peace Prize administration to withdraw the award given jointly to opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei and the International Atomic Energy Agency in 2005.

'I don't hope the military takes over': ElBaradei

'I don't hope the military takes over': ElBaradei | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Mohamed ElBaradei, head of Egypt's Constitution Party and a founding member of the National Salvation Front (NSF), is not hoping for a military takeover.

He made the comments on CBC's Hona El-Asema television show with Lamis El-Hadidy, Tuesday evening.

The leading opposition figure explained that Egypt suffered greatly under Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) rule. "It was very bitter," he said.

However, ElBaradei said that military institution rule would be better than rule under Islamist militias, if Egyptians had a choice.

ElBaradei explained that the military is a patriotic institution that doesn’t wish to participate in the political scene because of the harm it does them and the political scene.

"They do not know the depth of the political arena," he explained.

El-Baradei: Army Last Resort For Protecting Egypt

El-Baradei: Army Last Resort For Protecting Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Leading opposition Mohamed El-Baradei said that the Armed Forces are the last resort in protecting Egypt in the absence of the police.

In an interview with private-owned channel CBC on Tuesday, El-Baradei said that "the idea of establishing popular committees mean that we are heading to become another Somalia."

El-Baradei said the incumbent regime is the only reason behind the current failure.

"It is of the repercussions of the past 40 years," he added.

El-Baradei noted that Amnesty International issued a statement terming the bills of NGOs and demonstrations as a betrayal of the January 25 revolution.

 

Asked about proposing economic and political solutions for the current crises in Egypt, El-Baradei said he submitted two documents over constitutional principles and economic reform to former prime minister Kamal el-Ganzouri.

Un chef de file de l’opposition égyptienne, Hamdeen Sabahi, a indiqué avoir refusé, avec un autre opposant de renom, Mohamed ElBaradei, de rencontrer le secrétaire d’Etat américain John Kerry, en visite ce week-end au Caire, en raison des pressions de Washington.

«J’ai reçu une invitation et je l’ai rejetée, et M. ElBaradei en a aussi reçu une et a fait de même», a déclaré dans une interview à la chaîne ONTV ce dirigeant du Front du salut national (FSN), une coalition de partis et de mouvements en majorité de gauche et libéraux.

(AFP, via Le Nouvel Observateur) - L'une des figures de proue de l'opposition égyptienne, Mohamed ElBaradei, a appelé samedi à boycotter les élections législatives, évoquant une "supercherie".

Dans le même temps, la présidence de la République a changé la date des élections, prévues désormais à partir du 22 avril, pour cause de fêtes religieuses chrétiennes.

J'ai "appelé au boycott des élections législatives en 2010 pour montrer qu'il s'agissait d'une parodie de démocratie. Aujourd'hui, je répète mon appel, (je ne ferai) pas partie de cette supercherie", a affirmé M. ElBaradei sur son compte Twitter.

Le Prix Nobel de la Paix en 2005 semble ainsi laisser entendre que le scrutin pourrait être truqué comme cela avait été le cas en 2010, sous le règne du président Hosni Moubarak.

D'autres responsables du Front du salut national (FSN), une coalition d'opposition réunissant des groupes laïcs et libéraux, ont néanmoins indiqué qu'ils devaient encore se mettre d'accord sur une éventuelle décision de boycott.

ElBaradei calls for boycott of parliamentary elections

Opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei said he would boycott the upcoming parliamentary polls, refusing President Mohamed Morsi’s call for elections.

The National Salvation Front and Dostour Party leader  said on his twitter account that he had “called for parliamentary election boycott in 2010 to expose sham democracy. Today I repeat my call, [we] will not be part of an act of deception.”

In 2010 ElBaradei called for boycotting parliamentary elections under former President Hosni Mubarak. The result was that Mubarak’s National Democratic Party gained over 98 percent of seats, casting doubt on the state’s commitment to democracy. Mubarak was ousted two months later in a popular revolt.

The National Salvation Front, a coalition of secular parties and groups from across the political spectrum, called Morsi’s decision “disastrous” through its spokesperson Khaled Dawoud.

“The Front considers this decision disastrous, it is leading the country to the brink. We need a competent, neutral cabinet to run elections and deal with the many crises facing the country,” Dawoud said on the Telt Al Talata talk show Friday night.

He added that Morsi failed to provide any guarantees that the elections would be free and fair and that the NSF is leaning towards boycotting the elections, with an official announcement set to be made either Sunday or Monday.

NSF leaders have been threatening to boycott the elections for a while now, insisting their participation hinged on Morsi meeting their demands, which included dismissing Prime Minister Hesham Qandil’s cabinet and appointing a “national salvation” neutral cabinet to run the elections.

The opposition had also called on Morsi to postpone the elections, saying the country is not ready yet, demanded he remove Prosecutor General Talaat Abdallah whom he appointed unilaterally in November alongside the formation of a constitutional review committee tasked with suggesting amendments to controversial and disputed articles of the newly adopted constitution.

Egypt liberal sounds alarm over call for his death

Egyptian liberal politician Mohamed ElBaradei condemned Egypt's Islamist-led authorities on Wednesday for not arresting a Muslim cleric who said he should be sentenced to death.

ElBaradei's response came the same day as an outspoken secular opponent of Tunisia's Islamist-led government was killed outside his home in what the country's prime minister condemned as a political assassination.

The "Arab Spring" revolts have brought emboldened Islamist parties to power after decades of repression, but have also exposed divisions between them and their secular opponents. (Reuters)

Salafist preacher Borhami accuses ElBaradei of inciting violence

Salafist preacher Borhami accuses ElBaradei of inciting violence | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Salafist preacher Yasser Borhami has accused head of the Constitution Party Yasser Borhami of inciting violence through his social media statements.

 

Referring to ElBaradei's tweet posted late Friday reading "Violence and chaos will continue until Morsi & co listen [to] people's demands: new gov (government), democratic const (constitution), independent judiciary," Borhami said the liberal figure should be held accountable for encouraging the violence.

 

"[The statement] can be considered a form of incitation for violence and a subversion from the agreement of the Azhar initiative … He has to be held accountable," said the Salafist figure in a press statement Saturday.

 

An Al-Azhar initiative to stop the present violence was launched Thursday amidst escalating clashes between protesters and police across Egypt, and is joined by both the Salafist El-Nour Party and the National Salvation Front (NSF) of which ElBaradei is a founding member.  

 

Borhami's attack on ElBaradei comes after El-Nour Party, of which the Salafist figure is considered a godfather, and the NSF had come to agreement over possible reforms that could better ground a national dialogue.
