Former PM Najib Miqati stressed on Tuesday that President Michel Aoun is “confident” the government crisis will be resolved.
In remarks he made after meeting the President in Baabda, Miqati told reporters: “The President is confident the government will be formed and he is reassured that there is a work calendar for implementation immediately after the formation.”
A meeting expected today between General Security chief Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim and the so-called Independent Sunni MPs has raised expectations that easing the “obstacle” of their representation in the government could be solved.
Independent MPs, have adamantly demanded representation in the government.
They MPs: MP Abdel-Rahim Mrad, Adnan Traboulsi, Qassem Hashem (Amal Movement parliamentary bloc) Walid Sukkarieh (Hizbullah parliamentary bloc), Jihad al-Samad and Faisal Karami belong to a bloc that includes the Marada Movement.
Hizbullah has insisted the MPs should be given a seat in the government, refraining from providing Hariri with the names of its three Shiite ministers in a bid to press him.
