Beirut: “Asharq Al-Awsat”
Adeeb postponed his meeting with Aoun yesterday from noon to afternoon, with the aim of completing his contacts and forming a clear picture that Aoun would place in its airspace.
In an indication of the complications, Samir Geagea, head of the Lebanese Forces party, said, “Day after day … it is confirmed that with the ruling parliamentary majority, there is no hope for anything.”
Complications still surround the efforts to form the government, the most prominent of which is the insistence of the “Shiite duo” “Amal Movement” and “Hezbollah” to name the three Shiite ministers in the government, including the Minister of Finance, who decided the deliberations according to the initiative of former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, to be a Shiite after The disagreement is to include rotation of all portfolios, including money.
The Jaafari Mufti, Sheikh Ahmed Qabalan, yesterday expressed this insistence, saying: “We insist on naming our ministers, and we refuse to name them by anyone, on the basis of either a non-sectarian system and outside all quotas, otherwise each sect will name its representative in the government.”
He said, “As long as we are in the state of Taif and the sects, until everyone is convinced of the civil state, and they come to a new system, it takes us out of sectarianism and fanaticism and introduces us to the state of law, institutions, rights and duties on the basis of competence and competence.”
