Hezbollah says Syria vote means foes can't demand Assad quit

Syrian President Bashar Assad's landslide election victory means that his civil war foes can no longer call for his departure as a precondition for peace, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday.
The leader of the Lebanese group that has sent fighters to back the president, described the vote as a victory for Syria. Assad's foes called the election a charade."This election tells the opposition and all regional countries and the world that any political solution in Syria begins and ends with President Bashar Assad," Nasrallah told supporters via a video link.
"You can no longer put the resignation of the president as a pre-condition."
