Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri will only form a technocrat government, because a political government would push all politicians to get heavily involved in it, a top al-Mustaqbal Movement official has said.
“Hizbullah Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah encouraged President Michel Aoun to show further intransigence,” al-Mustaqbal Movement deputy head ex-MP Mustafa Alloush said in a radio interview, referring to the speech delivered Thursday by Nasrallah.
As for Nasrallah’s call for activating the caretaker cabinet, Alloush said such a move requires a “constitutional amendment.”
“Today we are drowning amid tense political situations,” Alloush lamented.
Nasrallah has said Hizbullah is still with the formation of a government of specialists but he advised Hariri to form a techno-political cabinet that can take difficult and unpopular decisions regarding the needed reforms.
Hariri is scheduled to hold a key meeting with President Michel Aoun on Monday.
