Berri Favors Participation of All Sides in Cabinet Without Setting Prior Conditions on Shares

Speaker Nabih Berri said Wednesday that he favored the participation of all parties in the cabinet without setting prior conditions on the shares of each side.

Following talks with President Michel Suleiman at Baabda palace, Berri said that “all former opposition parties support the premier-designate.”

The March 8 forces also announce their cooperation with Najib Miqati “to form a national salvation cabinet,” he said.

He told reporters that he didn’t reject the participation of both the March 8 and 14 forces in the government on condition that they don’t set their shares in the government.
