Geagea: Govt. Obstruction an Attempt to Curtail LF

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea noted Monday that some parties are “obstructing” the formation of the new government in an attempt to “curtail” the LF.

“It is lamentable that some parties are continuing to obstruct the formation of the government and the interests of the country and its citizens for the sole reason of attempting to curtail the Lebanese Forces,” Geagea tweeted.

The LF is demanding to get five seats in the new government in light of the gains it made in the latest parliamentary elections while the Progressive Socialist Party is demanding three seats. The Free Patriotic Movement is opposing the demands of the two parties.

Some parties, such as Hizbullah and the FPM, have meanwhile suggested that foreign countries, especially Saudi Arabia, are behind the ongoing delay.
