ABSTRACT
The article discusses politics in Egypt prior to national elections in 2011. Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's president since 1981, is widely accused of being undemocratic and of exacerbating the divide between rich and poor. His son, Gamal Mubarak, is being groomed to succeed his father. Mohamed ElBaradei, the former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, is expected to oppose Mubarak, while Islamic militants are gaining power amid popular unrest.
