Former Interior Minister Marwan Chabel was appointed as an Adviser on Military Affairs, An Nahar newspaper reported on Sunday.

According to the daily, President Michel Suleiman appointed Charbel in the post to benefit from his expertise in the field.

Charbel succeeded Abdul Motleb al-Hennawi in the post, after his appointment as Youth and Sports Minister in Premier Tammam Salam's new cabinet.

On Saturday, PM Salam unveiled a compromise government, capping nearly 11 months of political wrangling.

Charbel expressed hope in comments to Voice of Lebanon radio (100.5) that all parties cooperate with the newly appointed interior minister for the sake of the country.

"We have had enough of political disputes and rift," Charbel said.

Salam had appointed March 14 lawmaker Nouhad Mashnouq as Charbel's successor in the new cabinet.

Charbel also called for the complete cooperation between security agencies to overcome the security challenges facing Lebanon.

unless he had under his command 100,000 soldiers plus 50,000 cops for 200 kilometers of border ie 1 soldier every 2 meters. l think it would have been decent to have as an advisor, if needed an army seems in our republic , there seems to a confusion between the end and the means.
