thanks a lot for your trust in me (especially @Michal for his initial 
suggestion). However, I don't feel to be the right person. Even when 
it's not that much work (in theory ;-) ) that the chair has to do, I 
cannot gurantee to have it when it is needed.

I have to work for my money and therefore I can only spend my spare time 
in the evening and weekend - and even then not always. I don't want that 
you have to wait for me to get the chair work done.

Of course, you can say "don't worry, just try it". But to resign after 3 
months because it's really not working and then voting again for someone 
new would be IMHO a wrong message to the world.
