Syria's opposition coalition will meet in Istanbul on May 23 to decide whether to participate in a U.S. and Russian-sponsored conference to try to end the Syrian civil war.

The conference will also elect a new head of the Western and Gulf-backed coalition, and discuss the fate of provisional prime minister Ghassan Hitto.

The coalition is expected to increase the number of its members, particularly by adding groups on the ground fighting, during the meeting in Istanbul in order to become more representative of the Syrian people.
