Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam stressed on Saturday that the formation of a new government can't endure further delay.
“The formation of a new cabinet has become a pressing issue given the people's concerns over their country's future,” Salam said via twitter.
Earlier on Saturday, Salam held talks with President Michel Suleiman at the Baabda palace.
He left without making any statement.
Voice of Lebanon radio (100.5) reported that the two officials discussed the formation of the government as the March 8 and 14 alliances are holding onto their stances.
Salam had said on Thursday that government formation discussions were still focusing on the first stage of the division of seats among the March 8 alliance, March 14 coalition, and centrists.
He stressed that he holds on to his decision not to grant veto power to any side.
Hizbullah and the March 8 alliance insist on getting veto power in the cabinet but the March 14 coalition prefers a neutral government.
