Helou: Suleiman should not have a share in the cabinet

During an interview with Voice of Beirut radio, Free patriotic Movement MP Michel Helou reiterated the demands of his his boss and said on Thursday that their parliamentary bloc “will not relinquish its demand for the Interior Ministry portfolio.

Like his boss he also said that Lebanese President Michel Suleiman does not need a cabinet share since this is not stipulated in the Constitution, Helou told Voice of Beirut radio.

FPM leader Michel Aoun said on March 1:

“Nothing in the constitution determines the shares of the country’s president in the cabinet. The president abides by the law but he does not rule. Granting the president specific cabinet shares is a violation of the constitution.”

President Suleiman was represented by 3 ministers in the cabinet of outgoing PM Saad Hariri and is reportedly keen on keeping the ministries of defense and interior for the sake of stability in Lebanon

    when someone is saying that my boss wants this and my boss wants that. its an indication that you are a puppet. which means that if he tells you to jump you will. but the difference is that if we give you power you will abuse it and there is a line between good and bad nice and ugly to see the difference. it is not up to you or your boss to tell an elected president who is in charge of a country and army and trying to make a difference, that he should not get involved . why who are you to say this not you or any member can even flicker an eye to a president. if you now what respect means , or on the line of a free or freedom to all muslims and christians then you have the right to talk other wise shut it. and as for your boss i said it once and ill say it again tell him in his dreams he will see the presidency chair, and thats all he wants not the well being of the artmy and the generals that he left to die when he run away. god bless our land the flag and all the people, and mosqs and churches and holy saints that are in and on our land 10452.
