8th November local time, Samir Geagea, chairman of the Lebanese Forces Party, once again questioned the formation of a new government for national salvation.
He said that the country is currently in deep crisis, and it is still possible to get rid of the predicament by introducing new political forces and embark on the right path of development.
However, the authorities refused to hold parliamentary elections in advance and are still using the old methods to form a cabinet.
Earlier reports stated that Lebanese President Aoun and Prime Minister-designate Hariri decided to establish an 18-member cabinet based on the principle of decentralization.
Hariri was originally scheduled to submit a list of cabinet members to the President on the 5th, but ultimately failed. On the 6th, the two sides continued to discuss matters concerning the formation of the cabinet.
On the same day, President Aoun spoke with French President Macron. Macron once again urged Lebanon to form a cabinet as soon as possible and implement necessary reforms.
According to media reports, the recent US sanctions against Lebanon’s former foreign minister have also complicated Hariri’s efforts to form a cabinet.
