Egypt says presidential vote will be transparent

CAIRO — Egypt's premier says next year's presidential election will be transparent and that if the former head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency wants to run, he can either join a political party or form his own.
Ahmed Nazif told an investment conference Wednesday that he expects the political parties to field their candidates for the 2011 vote within six to eight months.
Separately, he told The Associated Press that former UN official-turned-activist Mohammed ElBaradei can "join or form their own political party" if he wants to run.
