Report: Govt. Representation of Independent Sunni MPs Not Resolved


Inspite of the growing “optimism” heralding a near government lineup, “probably on Sunday,” no indicators have shown that a solution is reached for an“obstacle” linked to the representation of a group of independent Sunni MPs, al-Joumhouria daily reported on Saturday.

Quoting well-informed sources, the daily said: “Matters have not yet been resolved in this regard,” pointing out that “Prime Minister-designate (Saad Hariri) categorically rejects the allocation of a ministerial portfolio to any of the independent lawmakers at the expense of his al-Mustaqbal Movement.”

A group of independent Sunni MPs demand the allocation of ministerial portfolios in the government arguing that “Sunni representation must not be confined to Hariri's al-Mustaqbal Movement.”

Hariri for his part denies the presence of a “Sunni obstacle” delaying the formation of the government.

Reports say that Hariri's mission which is facing Christian wrangling over key ministerial portfolios is expected to further complicate over the Sunni one.

Hariri can give all Sunni seats to hezballah and Aoun will still not sign the unless he gets the green light from hassan nasrallah who himself waits for the green light from Iran. Until then they will keep inventing new obstacles and excuses.

As I am 74 years old I think that you can rule out that I am "seeking a chair at some ministry"
