A ring is defined to be semiabelian if every idempotent of is either right semicentral or left semicentral. It is proved that the set of nilpotent elements in a -regular ring is an ideal of if and only if is abelian, where is the Jacobson radical of . It follows that a semiabelian ring is -regular if and only if is an ideal of and is regular, which extends the fundamental result of Badawi (1997). Moreover, several related results and examples are
