Parliamentary sources in the Strong Lebanon bloc have rejected the accusation against the bloc’s head Jebran Bassil of obstructing the formation of the government.
The sources restated, in remarks published Monday in the PSP’s al-Anbaa news portal, that “Bassil has not interfered in any way in the formation process.”
On the other hand, circles of Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati said that Miqati “is making every effort to form a government as quickly as possible.”
The circles added that “there are obstacles that must be resolved,” and that the time frame that Miqati had set is coming close to an end.
“Things will not continue as they are,” Miqati’s circles told al-Anbaa, affirming that they expect this week to be “decisive” for the government’s formation.
Meanwhile, al-Mustaqbal Movement Deputy head Mustafa Alloush said that the government’s formation remains “complicated,” accusing President Michel Aoun of “bargaining with the world” to lift the sanctions against Bassil in exchange for “releasing the country or keeping the blocking one-third.”
