Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati has been named as part of a “domestic-international settlement” in order to form a “salvation government,” a senior source from the Hizbullah-Amal alliance has said.
“The government will consist of 24 ministers and it will be a techno-political government,” the source told al-Liwaa newspaper in remarks published Wednesday.
“The PM-designate and ex-MP Walid Jumblat will get eight ministers, the Baabda camp will be allocated eight ministers and the Shiite duo and their Marada and Syrian Social Nationalist Party allies will be allotted eight ministers,” the source said.
The source added that 18 of the ministers will be technocrats and the remaining six will be “political ministers.”
The government will comprise ministers “who represent the civil society and enjoy international approval,” the source went on to say.
