President Michel Aoun is refusing to bow to Progressive Socialist Party chief Walid Jumblat's “moodiness” or to Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea's “conditions,” despite his enthusiasm to see the new government formed soon, media reports said.
“Aoun is among those most keen on the formation of the government, but strictly according to the results of the parliamentary elections without any deviation,” al-Joumhouria newspaper quoted “credible” sources as saying in remarks published Wednesday.
The sources stressed that, “most importantly, he will not bow to any conditions, especially the LF's conditions and PSP chief Walid Jumblat's demand on monopolizing Druze representation.”
“The president refuses that the government be under the mercy of Jumblat's moodiness should he gain the ability to threaten its existence” by stripping it of binding Druze representation, the sources added.
