ElBaradei says he will run for president of Egypt

Mohamed ElBaradei announced Wednesday he will run for president of Egypt.

The dissident reformist who served as director-general of the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog agency from 1997 to 2009 announced his decision on ONTV, a privately owned Egyptian television channel.

He also called for the constitution to be scrapped and replaced. He said his campaign would focus on education and health care for all, especially the poor.

    I think he'll make an excellent candidate that would solve Egypt's internal problems in transparency and honesty.
