Nasrallah said the “the doors of negotiation are still open”, but added that if the ruling anti-Syrian majority remained  “stubborn … we will not accept any of you to head the next government … we will form an interim government that will hold early elections”.


The opposition, made up mainly of Christian and Shia factions, no longer recognises the government after six pro-Syrian ministers resigned last month.
The government, backed by an anti-Syrian parliament majority elected in 2005, has rejected repeated demands from Hezbollah and its allies for increased representation which would give them an effective veto in the cabinet.
