Syrian rebels say government-in-exile 'stillborn, does not meet people's demands'
Damascus, Aug 2 (ANI): Rebel groups in Syria have said that a government-in-exile headed by a splinter group of dissidents was 'stillborn', and added that it did not represent the opposition's demands.
"This government-in-exile was stillborn because it was made by a single group that does not represent the whole of the opposition," the rebel Free Syrian Army's (FSA) spokesperson said.
"It does not meet the people's demands," the spokesperson added.
According to News24, the rebels' comments came a day after exiled dissident Haytham al-Maleh, 81, said in Cairo he had been tasked by a coalition of independent dissidents to create a government-in-exile based in the Egyptian capital.
FSA's , Colonel Kassem Saadeddine pointed out that a transitional government would require consensus.
"Any project that marginalises groups in the country is a failure," the report quoted him, as saying.
Saadeddine added that any transitional government should represent both the opposition inside the embattled country and the exiled Syrian National Council, the country's main opposition coalition. (ANI)
