ElBaradei campaign draws 10,000 volunteers in first week

Egyptian reform advocate Mohamed ElBaradei's presidential campaign announced on Tuesday that 10,000 volunteers have joined its ranks.

Campaign organizers released a statement saying volunteers hailed from several Egyptian provinces as well as Arab, African and other foreign states.

The campaign for ElBaradei, the former International Atomic Energy Agency Director, officially kicked off one week ago. 

It declared, through ElBaradei’s Facebook page, that it would accept another batch of volunteers in coordination with the first group that joined last week.

The pro-ElBaradei campaign began its activities in Assiut by refuting false accusations against the reform advocate concerning his ties to the US.
