According to local media reports, Lebanese Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri delivered a televised speech on the 14th.
Speaking of the cabinet formation process, Hariri stressed that he had held 14 rounds of consultations with President Aun, and he did not agree that the presidential camp would have 7 seats in the new government (more than one-third of the seats will have the veto), but was strong.
He held a cabinet of 18 technocrats.
Hariri stressed that only by advancing the French initiative and forming a government composed of independent experts can the necessary reforms be implemented.
On the same day, the presidential palace issued a statement in response to Hariri’s speech, saying that some of his remarks were inconsistent with the facts and was enough to prove that Hariri ignored the constitutional power to participate in the formation of the cabinet.
