S-S Agreement Back in Circulation to Resolve Cabinet Formation Crisis

The slowdown in the cabinet formation process and the developments in Syria have negatively affected the efforts to produce the government lineup, which explains the return to the regional-Arab equation of the S-S agreement, al-Liwaa newspaper reported on Saturday.

An informed source told the newspaper that going back to the S-S agreement, the Saudi-Syrian efforts to end Lebanon’s political crisis, is not unlikely seeing as the Doha agreement and the Arab-regional-international alliance that protected it have been eliminated.

The source added that the obstacle obstructing the cabinet formation lies in Lebanon, not elsewhere.

This obstacle is part of efforts to cover up the “invisible factors” that have been controlling the government formation since day one, it noted.

Meanwhile, Tawhid movement leader Wiam Wahhab hoped on Friday that the government will be formed “in the upcoming few hours”, and that his “predictions that the government won’t be formed anytime soon are wrong”.

He stressed that the only way out of the crisis given the current circumstances lies in forming a national unity cabinet.

“The government therefore can’t see the light without reviving the S-S agreement and all the current efforts to form it are a waste of time,” he said.

Addressing developments in Syria, Wahhab stated during a ceremony in his honor in Syria: “If Syria falls, the whole nation will fall … Certainly, reform and development are necessary in the Arab world, but there is a difference between them and destruction.”

What's striking is that the person who called for reviving the S-S agreement was Wiam Wahhab from a festival in Syria,
