ElBaradei: Mubarak-led gov't would be 'major setback'

Egyptian opposition leader Mohammed ElBaradei said it would be a "major setback" if the US chose to support Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak or Vice President Omar Suleiman to lead a transitional government, Reuters reported on Saturday.
"To hear that Mubarak should stay and lead the process of change, and that the process of change should essentially be led by his closest military adviser, who's not the most popular person in Egypt, without the sharing of power with civilians, it would be very, very disappointing," ElBaradei said.
