إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri intensifies efforts to ease obstacles hampering the formation process and has therefore held series of meetings with related parties.

Meanwhile, the Lebanese Forces reportedly said they had not received any official offer regarding portfolios, “we are only getting suggestions that keep on changing,” LBCI TV station quoted LF sources on Wednesday.

“We have not received any formal proposal regarding the ministries. We are only getting suggestions and we want to get the Justice Ministry,” they reportedly said.

The Free Patriotic Movement also insists on getting the ministry of justice which raises prospects of a new conflict between the two Christian parties.

Progress in the cabinet formation process loomed on Tuesday raising hopes that the gridlock is eased six months after the designation of the Premier.

why not creating a new sort of ministery which we can call: the ministry of corruption and stealing, assigned it to LF, FPM, Jumplat and Amal movement, each can follow up who is defrauding more, then send followers to the street to fight each other, the winner then would get the Justice profile to sue the loosers.... Sarcasm but worthit it.

...and while they are at it, they can make a Ministry of Pilgrimage and Terror.....assigned to no other than Hezbollah...

Lebanon was rated the 19th most corrupt country in the world see link. The Lebanese forces intend to improve on this and take 1st place from Yemen.

The Lebanese Forces are not in Power Canadadry. Corruption as you have shown has increased and multiplied itself in the last 2 years do to those who allow it to exist. You may want to google the quisling president who is the only one in Lebanons history to have employed all his family plus thier maids to the aid a corrupt government. Education is the only answer for Lebanon glorifying the demons into Gods has never worked long term.

At the end of the day the ones to blame are the people that put these clowns in power and the minute the people start questioning the politicians turn everything sectarian. All this to say is they are all corrupt, say what you want about MBS but what he did to regain the money stolen from KSA was the right thing to do. We need someone like that in Lebanon... wishful thinking on my part I know..

Even it's sworn enemies admit the LF ministers had done a great job, it is the real reason Bassil and co have been systematically attacking them
