Egypt ruling party unlikely to pick 2011 presidental candidate

Egypt's ruling party is unlikely to pick a candidate for the 2011 presidential election at its conference in October, the prime minister said on Wednesday, leaving it open whether President Hosni Mubarak will run again.

"I don't think that's going to happen this year, for sure," Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif said at a conference, when asked if the National Democratic Party would pick a candidate at the meeting. Mubarak, 81, has been in power since 1981.
