Libya and Tunisia have developed road maps with timelines for a transitional period and are on their way to stability, tweeted Mohamed ElBaradei, the former director of the International Atomic Energy Agency and possible candidate for the Egyptian presidency, on Sunday.

Seven months after Egypt's revolution, "What are we waiting for?" he asked.

ElBaradei called in July for the formation of a wide coalition of political parties – including Islamists – to run in the country’s first elections since the February ouster of president Hosni Mubarak.

ElBaradei’s proposed big-tent coalition would include Islamists as well as smaller leftist and secularist factions that played prominent roles in Mubarak’s ouster in February.
