Report: Hizbullah ‘Backs’ Aoun on LF Cabinet Quotas

W460

Hizbullah party, which seems to “keep distance” from the wrangling between political parties over government seats, “supports” President Michel Aoun’s (FPM founder) adamant stance in “blocking” the Lebanese Forces from getting four ministerial seats, Kuwait's As-Siyasah newspaper said on Wednesday.

“Hizbullah, which seems to spare no opportunity in voicing calls for a government lineup, has informed Aoun of its full support for his position regarding the formation process,” and the distribution of Cabinet shares, according to the daily.

"The party stands behind Aoun in depriving the Lebanese Forces from getting four ministerial seats,” it added.

The LF demands to get four seats including a so-called sovereign portfolio which has been indirectly rejected by FPM chief and Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil.

PM-designate Saad was tasked with forming the government on May 24 but his mission has since been delayed because of conflict between political parties mainly the Christian and Druze representation.
