Lebanese sources revealed, on Thursday, that a consensus had been reached on resolving the Finance Ministry’s “knot” in the formation of the new Lebanese government headed by Mustafa Adib.
This came after a meeting held by the French ambassador to Lebanon, Bruno Fuchsia, with Hezbollah officials, the ambassador discussed the position of the party and its ally Amal movement regarding the formation of the new government.
The sources suggested that the agreement between the French ambassador in Beirut and the Shiite duo ruled in “the recognition of the Shiite duo’s demand to take over the finance ministry in the government,” which Adib is working on.
It was agreed to extend the deadline for forming the Adib government until the end of this week, while the authoring consultations will witness intensification during the next few hours.
The Prime Minister-designate will visit the President of the Republic, Michel Aoun, this afternoon. He will later meet with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, as part of his consultations to form the government.
The Free Patriotic Movement and the Shiite bilateral coalition had registered objections that turned into a retirement from participating in the government, due to Adib’s way in managing the file of forming the government, and not consulting with leaders of political parties.
