The latest “positive impulse” in the government formation process is “still ongoing,” political sources have said.
“The possibility of finalizing the government file before Speaker Nabih Berri's travel in the middle of next week is still on,” the sources added in remarks published Sunday by Kuwait's al-Rai newspaper.
Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri is “pressing on with his marathon efforts to resolve the obstacles through proposing a lot of formats and ideas behind closed doors and via the 'WhatsApp diplomacy,'” the sources went on to say.
They said the efforts are aimed at reaching compromises regarding the shares of the Lebanese Forces and the Progressive Socialist Party.
Hariri had announced Friday that the negotiations have become “very close” to the final line-up “equation,” after talks with President Michel Aoun in Baabda.
Hariri was tasked with forming the new government on May 24.
