Lebanese gov't formation in Hariri's hand: official
(MENAFN) Caretaker Deputy Prime Minister, Public Health Minister Ghassan Hasbani considered the obstacles delaying the formation of the new Cabinet denote a "battle of powers" between the Presidency and Premiership, the National News Agency reported on Saturday.
"Although the government formation is an internal matter, but it is affected to a certain extend by foreign developments. The key obstacle in the formation is the conflict over powers between the presidency and premiership," added Hasbani.
Hasbani emphasized the essential role of the Prime Minister-designate in this respect.
He said the problem today is that a certain political party wants to have a big share in the Cabinet "which undermines the essence and prerogatives of the cabinet formation."
"The decision now is in the hands of the PM-designate," Saad Hariri, Hasbani went on.
