Former IAEA chief Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei criticised the security services arrests of youths calling for change in Alexandria, confirming that these measures strengthen his resolve and his insistence on calling for reform.
The Noble Peace prize laureate, who recently emerged onto Egypt’s political scene, emphasized that the continued collision with Egypt’s finest young people in Alexandria, illustrates the system’s inability to comprehend democracy or the democratic process.
He highlighted that the arrests would not deter his call along with other political opposition working collectively urging political reform and amendments to the constitution.
The oppositionists campaign has faced challenges by security and a protest has been scheduled in Alexandria to take place before the Alexandria courts coinciding with an appeal hearing submitted by the National Assembly for change’s lawyer challenging a court order to release members of the Muslim Brotherhood who were issued a release order with a 10,000 LE bail for collecting signatures.
