Report: Anticipation ahead of Ibrahim’s Meeting with Independent Sunni MPsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The final position of the so-called Consultative Gathering MPs may “crystalize” today after a meeting expected between the six MPs and General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim in a bid to resolve the “Sunni hurdle” of representation, media reports said on Tuesday.
The meeting is going to take place over dinner in the residence of Abdul Rahim Mrad, one of the said MPs demanding a cabinet seat in the government, al-Joumhouria daily reported.
Sources following up on the issue said the “crisis could continue unless the demand of the MPs are met. Shall Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri recognizes their initial right for representation, they could show leniency,” the source told the daily.
The MPs had met President Michel Aoun a few days ago and expressed adamant positions for representation.
Aoun has been holding consultations with the concerned parties for the past week in a bid to ease the “Sunni hurdle.” Reports claimed that Aoun might accept the allocation of a seat for said MPs from his own share.
