Mohamed ElBaradei, who leads the main opposition National Salvation Front, wrote on Twitter Saturday, Feb. 23, 2013 that he is calling for the boycott "to expose sham democracy," as he said he did in a similar call in 2010 under then-president Hosni Mubarak. ElBaradei says he urges the boycott of the vote called by Islamist President Mohammed Morsi because he "will not be part of an act of deception."(AP Photo/Thomas Hartwell, File)
