Outgoing President Michel Suleiman will chair on Friday a cabinet session that will tackle a new package of appointments after positive signs loomed on filling the vacant administrative posts.

The session, which will be held at the Baabda Palace at 4:00 pm, will tackle 61 articles on its agenda, local newspapers reported on Thursday.

The session will be Suleiman's penultimate cabinet meeting before the end of his tenure on May 25.

On May 15, the cabinet made a series of appointments in a four-hour session.

The government is expected to discuss in its session on Friday the appointment of the members of the Military Council, the Inspector General and the Managing Director at the Ministry of Defense, the acting Director General of the Internal Security Forces and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the consumer markets.

Ministerial sources described the session in comments published in An Nahar daily as “important.”

The sources pointed out that the meeting will also tackle the landlines and cellular tariffs and international and Arab agreements.

n a modern world children might be born to parents with certain political colour , but when they grow older they are not branded, they determine themselves to wich political parties they want to belong,and most of all according to their constitution they have equal rights, in politics religion does not play any role .Unfortunately in Lebanon the feudal system based on devide and rule is prohibiting Lebanon to join the modern world.

why are the shia against President Suleiman... ?!

The Shia aren't against Suleiman, Hezbollah is. And I will tell you why :

Because he's not a puppet they control.

Hezbollah will only approve of a president that will be loyal to them like a dog.

Be sure that any president they approve will be an Iranian stooge.

Look what happens to khadam, ghazi and his own brother Ali ken3an, you get eliminated nicely or forcefully. There is no such thing as democratic thing in their dictionary and that's how Lebanon should be remain weak under their ruling because a strong president will be a follower of Israel and the west which they stand in line to get visa to go to.

or a follower of KSA which they also stand in line to get visa to go to...

Good riddance. Maybe Suleiman can spend his retirement days in Riyadh counting the terrorist petrodollars he was paid to sell out Lebanon to the kingdom of terrorism.
