CAIRO - An emerging opposition leader in Egypt has called for a boycott of the upcoming elections, an Egyptian activist says.

Ibrahim Nawar, a senior member of the opposition National Front Party says former UN nuclear watchdog head Mohammed ElBaradei made his remarks during a meeting with party members Monday to discuss political strategy.Nawar says ElBaradei called for the boycott to "deprive" President Hosni Mubarak's regime of legitimacy.

ElBaradei has called for the constitution to be amended to allow free and fair elections in the country. The call for a boycott represents an escalation of his approach.

A Nobel laureate, ElBaradei has seen a wave of support from reformists who see him as a potential challenger to Mubarak.
