After assigning Hassan Diab to form a new government, thousands of protesters took to streets of lebanon accusing him of being backed by Hezbollah. However, many observers speculate that Diab’s cabinet will represent all sects in Lebanon.
Anti-Diab’s protests may be because of his close ties with Hezbollah leaders. This is a convincing reason for hating the man, but not enough. He still needs a chance. He needs an opportunity to work and come up with a solution.
Diab, who has been supported by Hezbollah, Amal Movement and other independents, not only politicians, is expected to form a technocratic cabinet.
He promised to appoint professionals and persons with expertise, not just politicians.
Lebanese people are angry at ninety percent of the known politicians and public figures.
Accordingly, it’s a perfect time to give the helm to technocrats.
In the first U.S. comments after Diab’s appointment as prime minister, a senior U.S. official said Washington is ready to help Lebanon “but can do so only when Lebanon’s leaders undertake a credible, visible and demonstrable commitment to reform.” U.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale spoke during a visit in Beirut where he met with the president, parliament speaker and caretaker prime minister Hariri.
The US intervention into Lebanon domestic affairs is categorically refused at all levels.
Despite the fact that Hezbollah is backed by Iran, all political sects have to find some common grounds and mutual interests for talks.
In other words, the mutual interests must be topped by the stability of Lebanon so that the country will not suffer a new wave of sectarian conflicts.
Let’s agree to give Hassan Diab a chance and see how he will form the government.
Streets and squares are always owned by only the people, not politicians. If he does not adhere to his word, let’s take to streets again and remove him from The Grand Serail.
