BEIRUT, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- Hezbollah Leader Hassan Nasrallah said Friday that the resistance in Lebanon is stronger than ever before and it has never been that powerful, NBN local TV channel reported.

"We did not support the resignation of the government not because we were worried about Hezbollah, but we feared chaos which would disable the cabinet from paying its employees' salaries," Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

Nasrallah said that some foreign powers accused Hezbollah of dominating the past cabinet's decisions which is not true.

"Hezbollah has never dominated any cabinet in Lebanon and such accusations aim at holding Hezbollah responsible for any failure," he said.

Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri's cabinet resigned three days ago after nationwide protests against the cabinet's policies.

Nasrallah had announced prior to the cabinet's resignation that his party would not allow the government to resign.
