Former South Sudan rebel leader Riek Machar said on Friday he does not believe it will be possible for the country's divided leaders to meet a May 12 deadline to form a national unity government.

In an exclusive interview with Reuters, Machar, who is slated to become first vice-president in the unity government, also said he is confident that the new military leadership in Khartoum will continue to guarantee the fragile South Sudan peace process.
