Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said he refused to speak with Mohamed ElBaradei, who was installed as the Egyptian vice president in a cabinet formed by the military after a coup, saying his refusal was due to the fact that ElBaradei was brought to the post by a military junta.
Some media reports had recently said the Turkish prime minister rejected a request by ElBaradei for a meeting. Sources from Prime Ministry had denied the reports, saying, “We have no such information.”

Mohamed ElBaradei and other prominent Egyptians on Saturday launched a party which he said would one day govern the country, offering a new choice to voters seeking alternatives to Islamist parties that now dominate parliament.

Ex-UN nuclear watchdog chief and Nobel peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei ended his candidacy for Egypt's presidency Saturday, saying he could not run because there is still no real democracy there.
"My conscience does not allow me to run for the presidency or any other official position unless there is real democracy," ElBaradei said in a statement received by AFP.
