'March 8 Sunnis' Won't be Represented in Governmentإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The Sunnis of the Hizbullah-led March 8 camp will not be represented in the new government, sources informed on the formation process and a top Mustaqbal Movement official said.
In an interview with Asharq al-Awsat newspaper published Sunday, senior Mustaqbal official ex-MP Mustafa Alloush confirmed “the exclusion of the Sunnis of the March 8 forces from the new government.”
Mustaqbal does not want them in the government because that would be “detrimental and not beneficial,” Alloush told the daily.
“We have accepted Hizbullah because it is a de facto situation but we are not willing to accept parties that have been practically created by Hizbullah,” the ex-MP added.
Political sources informed on the formation process also confirmed that March 8's Sunnis will not be represented.
The Marada Movement of March 8 will meanwhile get a Christian seat in the government, the sources added.
Ten Sunni politicians allied to Hizbullah became MPs in the new parliament after the May 2018 elections.
