Qabalan Urges Aoun to 'Give Up' Cabinet Share

W460

Grand Jaafarite Shiite Mufti Sheikh Ahmed Qabalan appealed on President Michel Aoun to “give up” his presidential share in the government in favor of what he described as “hooligan sons” who are obstructing the Cabinet formation.

Voicing calls to expedite the formation process of the government while marking the Hijri Year, Qabalan said: “We appeal to the President, in his capacity as the father of all Lebanese, and in favor of national interest, to give up his ministerial share in the government in favor of his hooligan and obstructive sons.”

The Sheikh called on all political officials to ease their demands and conditions in order to lineup the delayed Cabinet which Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri was tasked to form since May 24.

Because of conflict between the political parties over shares and quotas, mainly the Druze and Christian representation, Hariri’s mission has since been delayed.

And we appeal to our shiite brethren in Hezbollah and Amal to give some of their share to the shiah-opposition. Among then is Mohamed al-Amin https://www.france24.com/en/20180424-lebanon-elections-hezbollah-candidate-shiite-attack
