Hariri and Aoun in Agreement on Cabinet Formation

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri stressed on Monday that there are no disagreements between him and President Michel Aoun on the process of lining-up the new cabinet.

“We are in agreement with the President on everything. There are only some difficulties,” said Hariri after meeting Aoun at the Baabda Palace.

Asked about the parties that are disrupting the formation process, he said: “Those obstructing the formation are known, go and ask them.”

Following the election of Aoun in October, Hariri was designated to form a cabinet.

Although hopes rose that a cabinet could be formed before Independence Day, but efforts seem to stall in light of the political parties' adamant demands to be given specific portfolios in the future cabinet.
