The youngest son of Egypt's longtime ruler who many believe is being groomed to succeed his father insisted Tuesday that he had no plans to become president. "I said before and I am repeating it again, the intention and ambition to run for president doesn't exist," Gamal Mubarak, 43, told the private-owned Arabic satellite TV channel, Orbit. When asked if he would accept the nomination for presidency if it was offered from the ruling National Democratic Party Gamal said: "As long as you don't have the desire, whatever the party says" doesn't matter. "I'm not looking for any executive post," he said, adding that he was not interesting in leading the NDP or any other political parties.
