Geagea Meets Aoun: 'Christian Duo' Must be Treated Like 'Shiite Duo' in Govt.
Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea held talks Thursday with President Michel Aoun in Baabda on the sidelines of the binding parliamentary consultations to name a new premier.
After a 15-minute bilateral meeting with the president, Geagea announced that the LF bloc nominated caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri for a new term.
“I hope the new government will be new par excellence and the country needs a major rescue operation,” Geagea told reporters.
Turning to issue of shares in the new government, Geagea called for “treating the Christian duo (LF and Free Patriotic Movement) the same way like the Shiite duo (Hizbullah and AMAL Movement) in the government formation process.”
“We must also treat blocs according to their real sizes, seeing as a bloc cannot add four or five members before the formation process,” the LF leader urged.
