Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Nauim Qassem stressed that representing the independent Sunnite lawmakers in the new Lebanese cabinet has been demanded since PM-designate was tasked on May 24, adding that the latter disregarded this demand and sought resolving the rest of the ministerial knots.
Sheikh Qassem said that after surpassing the Christian and the Druze two obstacles, the Sunni knot appeared to be new, but added that the independent Sunni lawmaker met the PM-designate during the unbinding consultations and informed him about their demand.
His eminence also confirmed that if the Sunni lawmakers from outside the Future Movement weren’t represented, the national unity cabinet will never be complete.
In turn, the head of Hezbollah executive council Sayyed Hashem Safieddine also emphasized that the independent Sunni lawmakers have the right to be represented in the new cabinet because they themselves represent a considerable segment of their popular incubator.
