    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.
