Veto... or no deal

Hizbollah have presented their list of demands to end the political deadlock in Lebanon.

Hassan Nasrallah is quoted as saying:

"A solution lies in a partnership through a constitutional guarantee (and) through a veto power for the opposition, which represents more than half of the Lebanese people."

"As long as there is a US decision not to give the opposition a veto power, this means there won't be a presidential election,"

Nasrallah said he supported Michel Suleiman for president, but the election "will not solve the problem without a national unity government in which the opposition gets a veto power."

Nasrallah said the US-backed M14 coalition, "wants to fully control authority and rejects partnership with the other party ... A veto power means that the opposition becomes a partner (in government)."
