In a recent interview with Mary Wald on the Community.com former IAEA chief Dr.Mohamed ElBaradei attributed Egypt joining the Failed States Index list to the lack of democracy, stressing that the regime must acknowledge the issue describing the country as 'stunted'.
 
He claimed that people in Egypt have become enlightened and are ready to practice the basic freedoms most particularly freedom of speech. He claimed that by being exposed to universal values including tolerance, social solidarity and mutual respect for diversity harmony will undoubtedly prevail
 
ElBaradei maintained that Egypt could be transformed into a modern state mainly through education emphasizing that education would be a top priority if he became the next president of Egypt. He continued "with education you have access to the rest of the world'
 
Regarding his proposed changes and demands for reform which political opposition has collectively united to work for he assured that if the regime agreed to the demands Egypt could have tremendous impact on the region
 
His meetings with the strongest and most popular and effective Muslim Brotherhood have proved to be amiable where he defended the group describing them as moderate individuals calling for peaceful reform and political amendments similar to most opposition seeking a civil state based on Islamic values
 
He objected to the state media's bad mouthing of the group adding that the governments in the region try to paint the MB as extremist something which they are definitely not, in an effort to win the support of the West. He claimed that change was only possible in Egypt with the group's support since they cannot be ignored
 
His proposals for change have prompted the MB and NAC to launch an online petition and to take to the streets to raise public awareness. The campaign which has so far reached more than 500, 000 signatures combined has not been met with lightly as security forces round up activists mainly from the MB in an attempt to intimidate any opposition who dare oppose the regime or become involved in civil outbursts
 
Among the demands is the call for the elimination of the renewed emergency law imposed for over 30 years since Mubarak's assuming control and abused by the interior's security apparatus despite assurances that the law was imposed to combat drug trafficking and terrorism. The regime has continued to detain opposition mostly members from the MB indefinitely in clear defiance to the constitution
