Okais: Cabinet formation not linked to STL verdict
Member of Parliament, George Okais, confirmed on Monday that the cabinet line-up was not linked to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon's decision.
"The STL was established many years ago, during which many cabinets had been formed," the lawmaker told Free Lebanon radio station.
However, Okais said that the STL's final verdict, which is anticipated to be issued real soon, could be appealed.
"Consequently, the judicial path will not end in the near future, which is another reason why the cabinet is not linked to the STL verdict," Okais explained, confirming that "government representation is only based on the outcome of elections.
