Salam Looks Forward to Everyone's Cooperation to Form National Interest Cabinetإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam thanked on Sunday all the Lebanese who congratulated him on his nomination and said he looked forward to everyone's cooperation to form his new government.
In a statement issued by his press office, Salam thanked all the Lebanese for their support since he was tasked with forming the cabinet earlier this month.
“This sympathy, which I am proud of, puts more responsibility on me and creates an impetus for more work to confront the huge national challenge facing us and the formation of the cabinet of national interest,” he said.
“I look forward for the cooperation of loyalists in Lebanon,” Salam added.
Earlier this week, Salam said he was switching to the Off mode and would not make any statements to the media during the process of cabinet formation.
The PM-designate faces a difficult task over the March 8 alliance's insistence to form a national unity cabinet and March 14 coalition's call for a government whose members are not running in the parliamentary elections.
Salam's call for a government of national interest mainly lies in not having political figures in a small cabinet that would be able to supervise the polls.
