Leading opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei has cancelled a press conference planned for 1pm and released a statement announcing his withdrawal from the presidential race.

"The previous regime has not fallen yet," a statement on his Facebook page said by way of explanation.

ElBaradei is currently holding a closed meeting with several media figures and a number of his advocates. As of 2pm, the meeting has not yet finished.

Journalists were not allowed to attend the meeting and were told there will be no press conference. 

ElBaradei's statement will be published shortly on Ahram Online.

Thank Allah..! Baradei is gone
Thank God..Bradaei is not the right person for Egypt now or later. He lived out of the country for over 45 years and hardly know it or her people. Baradei's contributions for Egypt were almost nil. His association with the west corrupted him . Also he does not really look the piece..!
