Mohamed ElBaradei
Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images
Updated: March 10, 2011
Mohamed ElBaradei, an Egyptian-born lawyer, headed the International Atomic Energy Agency for 12 years, winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.
He stepped down in 2009 and announced plans to challenge President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt in the 2011 elections, but drew little support and left the country. When mass protests broke out in January 2011, he returned. He briefly took center stage as the Mubarak government looked for someone to negotiate with. But as the largely leaderless popular uprising proceeded, it became clear that Mr. ElBaradei was only one of many voices calling for Mr. Mubarak to go.
After 18 days of angry protests, Mr. Mubarak resigned and turned over all power to the military on Feb. 11, 2011, ending his 30 years of autocratic rule and bowing to a historic popular uprising that transformed politics in Egypt and around the Arab world.
Mr. ElBaradei said March 9 that he intended to run for president in new elections, if constitutional reforms make it possible. The announcement came amid a growing sense of uncertainty as Egypt began to chart its future after decades of autocratic rule and as violence began to escalate.
Before the protests began, Mr. ElBaradei, who has sought to refashion himself as pro-democracy campaigner in his homeland, was viewed by some supporters as capable of uniting the country’s fractious opposition and offering an alternative to Mr. Mubarak’s authoritarian rule. Critics viewed him as an opportunist who had spent too little time in the country to take control of a movement that began without his leadership.
A month after Mr. Mubarak fell, Amr Moussa, the former foreign minister of Egypt, was considered the front-runner in the 2011 presidential race, which was scheduled for August.
