DOHA - A founder of the Syrian National Council (SNC) resigned on Friday, saying the opposition group had failed to reform and had even removed women from senior positions at a meeting in Qatar where restructuring was supposed to take place.

Businessman Adib al-Shishakly, grandson of a late Syrian president, said the the main overseas opposition in the 20-month-old Syrian uprising "has failed to become an institution" and a newly elected 41-member general assembly was dominated by Islamists.

The SNC, which has come in for criticism from international allies for being ineffective and riven by personal disputes, said it had enlarged its membership and become more inclusive at the meeting in the Qatari capital of opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
