Hizbullah Calls for Understanding on Cabinet, Vote Law to Avoid Crisis

The deputy head of Hizbullah's executive council and a Hizbullah MP called on Sunday for understanding among the rival political parties to avoid a new crisis on the formation of the new cabinet which they said should represent political parties.

“Lebanon is based on understanding whether in the formation (of the government) or the electoral law,” Sheikh Nabil Qaouq, the council's deputy leader, said during a seminar organized by a cultural center in Nabatiyeh.

The unanimity that Lebanon witnessed during the nomination of Premier-designate Tammam Salam should be reflected on other major developments in the country, he said.

Salam was tasked by President Michel Suleiman with forming the government after 124 out of 128 MPs nominated him in the binding consultations held at Baabda palace.

Qaouq called for “a government that includes the representatives of the nation,” a reflection of the call made by the Hizbullah-led March 8 alliance to form a national unity cabinet.

The government formation “shouldn't be a source for a new crisis” which would go “against the interest of the nation,” he said.

On the contrary, it should lead to stability and consolidate the nation's interest, he added.

Hizbullah MP Mohammed Raad also made similar comments on Sunday, saying “the representation in any cabinet should be a political one to create the right balance that would achieve stability in the country.”

He criticized calls for a technocrat or neutral cabinet, saying Salam can't impose his will on the entire Lebanese people.

The PM-designate has said he would form a “government of national interest” to supervise the elections.

Its not about governance,its about who wants to rob and pillage what.Politicians in Lebanon are poppets,thier job is to fatten thier pockets or the pockets of thier leaders.Come to think of it,most Lebanese would do the same as these politicians and steal when in power simply because there is no accountability in this cursed country.They rob and pillage without consequence."al mal al sayeb teach people to steal".No term limit no acountibility banana republic.

It all sounds nice, but what this guy and Raad are saying is that things better be done their way, or they, Hezbollah, will be the source of the creation of instability in Lebanon and the creation of a new crisis. Those who warn of threats of violence are usually the source of it.

They don't want pragmatism--they just want to somehow justify their hold on the title 'resistance'. This is why they are talking more and more these days which means they want something.
