Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced late Tuesday that he will not seek re-election in September, calling an end to his nearly 30-year rule on a day when hundreds of thousands of his countrymen flooded the streets of Cairo and demanded his immediate ouster.
Over the past six months, about 15,000 of these volunteers have formed the kernel of a burgeoning youth opposition movement in Egypt; they are pinning their hopes for leadership on Mohamed ElBaradei, the Nobel peace laureate and former chief of the United Nation's nuclear watchdog agency.
"He's unfortunately going to extend the agony here for another six, seven months. He continues to polarize the country. He continues to get people even more angry and could [resort] to violence," Mr. ElBaradei said in an interview on CNN.
Egypt's new movement has not implemented Mr. Sharp's more dramatic steps yet, but Mr. ElBaradei said he won't hesitate to call for civil disobedience if the government remains intransigent.
