‘Progress’ on Resolving Govt. Crisis as FPM Shows ‘Flexibility’
There is no solution to the governmental crisis unless the ruling parties, including the Free Patriotic movement, agree on restoring the role of the Higher Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers, Amal and Hizbullah sources told al-Liwaa newspaper.
The newspaper said that contacts between President Michel Aoun, Speaker Nabih Berri, Prime Minsiter Najib Miqati, FPM and Hizbullah haven’t reached a final conclusion yet.
“A progress has been made in the last couple of days,” according to the newspaper, without reaching a final consensus before the legislative session tomorrow.
The FPM’s political council “showed flexibility” towards discussing the referral of the ex-PM and former ministers to the Higher Council for the Trial of Presidents and Ministers in parliament, al-Liwaa added.
The newspaper quoted the FPM as saying that “the government is not responsible and has no authority to resolve the existing judicial dispute,” and that “finding a solution is within the competence of the judiciary or Parliament.”
