Election fever hits Egypt

Election fever hits Egypt - The parliamentary elections will be held in late November but the 2011 presidential elections are already the talk of the town in Cairo.

Will his son Gamal, a business man turned politician, inherit the power as many analysts and opponents suspect? Will Mohamed El baradei, former director of the IAEA, manage to lift the legal obstacles to his candidacy to Egypt's top job?
