Head of Egyptian Intelligence Omar Suleiman will not run for the Egyptian presidency, Army Radio reported Thursday citing Egyptian Daily Al-Akhbar.

"Suleiman thanks his supporters and is pleased by the public's sympathy but is time is devoted to his family and not to political activities," a statement said effectively ending a decades-long career in Egyptian government, according to the report.
