PARIS — The secretary-general of the Arab League said he would consider running in elections to replace embattled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Amr Moussa said he expects Mubarak to remain in his post until his term ends in seven months, though "there are extraordinary things happening and there is chaos, maybe he will make a different decision."

Moussa said he believes it would be impossible to organize new elections quickly.

He also said he would consider a role in a transitional government. Asked about a potential run for the presidency, he responded, "why say no?"

Moussa spoke to France's Europe 1 radio on Friday. He also said any new government in Egypt "cannot ignore the Muslim Brotherhood," the country's largest opposition group.
