Hizbullah is “still open to all solutions that lead to reviving Cabinet sessions,” MP Hassan Fadlallah of the group’s Loyalty to Resistance bloc said on Saturday, a day after one of two crises paralyzing Cabinet was resolved with the resignation of Information Minister George Kordahi.
“We in Hizbullah are seeking the success of the government in its work… and we have always expressed our support and encouragement for the ministers to carry out their missions and for the work of ministerial panels, but we also want the government to work collectively,” the MP added.
He, however, noted that there is “a clear path that can be taken by those in charge” of the government in order to end the crisis.
“They have solutions in their hands which they can resort to in order to exit the crisis of its meetings’ suspension, especially that the reasons have become known,” Fadlallah went on to say.
Cabinet has not convened since October 14, when a political crisis erupted over the investigations of Beirut port blast investigator Judge Tarek Bitar, with Hizbullah and Amal Movement demanding that a decision be taken in Cabinet to remove him over alleged bias. President Michel Aoun’s camp and other parties had meanwhile voiced their rejection of political interference in the judiciary.
