Khoury: Cabinet formation entails adoption of unified standards
MP Salim Khoury said on Thursday that forming a government entailed the adoption of unified standards by Prime Minister-designate, Saad Hariri, deeming this the sole means to make all the political teams commit to the suggested cabinet lineup.
"If no unified standards are adopted, then Prime Minister Hariri cannot oblige anyone to commit to any governmental formula suggested on these bases," Khoury told the Voice of Lebanon radio station.
Moreover, he stressed that when a political party demanded concessions, then its claim must be fundamentally right.
"The Lebanese Forces demand a larger share than their actual size; therefore, the LF cannot demand concessions; our team did not insist on more representation than its size," he added, pointing out that the remarks of President Michel Aoun were clear on cabinet formation.
"The President has asked of Hariri to launch a new round of consultations, taking into account these observations," he added.
