(CNN) –Opposition Leader Mohamed ElBaradei says the solution for Egypt's terrible shape is a political one, not a military one.

ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, tells CNN's John Defterios that Egypt must start political reconciliation to stop the social unrest and violence in the country.

The North African state needs support from the International Monetary Fund to "jump start" the economy, according to ElBaradei.

    I agree that Egypt needs all the honest and innovative ideas to help them stabilize the country, but this guy is not the one who can speak on behalf of Egypt, I think that CNN is trying to sell Elbaradiee as an opposition leader, not knowing that most of Egyptians are tired of even looking at the guy, he does not have any vision nor is a leader, he has proven that he does not believe in democracy, he only believes in it when it comes to his own interest, I think he is still immature in politics and does not understand the reality yet. Look at his history , and you will find out the truth about his CIA connection
