Respected worldwide, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and for 12 years the leader of the UN nuclear watchdog, Mohammed ElBaradei is positioning himself as a force for change in his homeland.

He has already said he might run for president of Egypt, and now he's forming a coalition to press for free and fair elections in a land ruled for nearly 30 years by President Hosni Mubarak.

ElBaradei, 67, returned to Cairo only days ago to a hero's welcome by supporters who see him as the most credible opposition leader to emerge as this US-allied country prepares for the 2011 presidential vote.

Existing restrictions make it practically impossible for independents to run, meaning that ElBaradei's chances are dim without long-sought constitutional amendments.
