Madagascar's opposition called Thursday for the president and prime minister to resign and said it would no longer negotiate in a deepening dispute over new election laws.The opposition says the new election laws could be used to block Ravalomanana from standing over criminal convictions that stem from cases tried while he was in exile after the coup.Ravalomanana has teamed up with the man who succeeded him, Andy Rajoelina, to oppose the laws, which have been backed by President Hery Rajaonarimampianina.Rivo Rakotovao, the head of Rajaonarimampianina's party, asked the opposition to give negotiations a chance and attend a second day of talks which the opposition has said it will skip.
