Syrian opposition rejects any election-related delay in peace talks

GENEVA - The Syrian opposition said on Sunday that it rejected any delay in the next round of peace talks in Geneva based on a government effort to postpone them due to parliamentary elections set for April 13.
Salim Al-Muslat, spokesman of the High Negotiations Committee (HNC), told reporters in Geneva: "We won't accept a postponement to hold illegitimate elections. We didn't receive anything from Mr. (Staffan) de Mistura calling for a delay."
Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, in a sign of confidence, reflecting his growing momentum on the battlefield, last month called the parliamentary election. Elections are held every four years and the last one was in 2012.
