The Kataeb Party has vetoed the National Council that the March 14 alliance is seeking to establish, Ad-Diyar newspaper reported on Tuesday.
The daily said that Kataeb leader ex-President Amin Gemayel and his son MP Sami Gemayel have rejected to go ahead with the plan over fears that the council would not be functional.
The veto is linked to previous problems that the Kataeb had with the March 14 general-secretariat, said the report.
A committee setting the stage for the 10th anniversary of the March 14 alliance's formation has been been holding meetings over the Council that it aims to launch on Saturday.
The council's job would be to monitor the policies of the March 14 alliance through a working mechanism that includes the announcement of a manifest and political statements every three to four months.
The council would also organize workshops and events in parallel to the functions of the March 14 general-secretariat.
