CAIRO - Egyptian liberal opposition politician Mohamed ElBaradei called on Saturday for a boycott of parliamentary elections which are due to start in April.

ElBaradei, a former UN nuclear agency chief, noted that he had called in 2010 for a similar boycott of polls held under president Hosni Mubarak, who was ousted the following year."Today I repeat my call, (I) will not be part of an act of deception," ElBaradei said on his Twitter account.
