Arslan wants a respectable ministerial post

Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati held a meeting with a delegation from the Lebanese Democratic Party which was headed by its leader MP Talal Arslan , after which he reiterated that all sects will be represented in his upcoming cabinet.

This comes after Arslan warned on Tuesday that his bloc will boycott the upcoming cabinet if it is not granted a respectable ministerial portfolio. In other words he does not want a state ministerial  post .

The state ministerial posts are usually used as fillers , since there aren’t enough ministerial post to complete a 30 member cabinet that can satisfy the demands of all the 18 Lebanese sects.

The PM-designate said that he will seek to resolve the distribution of shares “in a positive and constructive spirit with everyone.”

    Talal Beik and Wahab are lovers and they’re both gay even though they claim to have wives. They were caught by Syrian security and been threatened to side all the way with Syria or else..

      I heard the same thing about MP Arslan from an Internal security officer few years ago , however if he is an able leader that does not diminish him any more then a religious fanatic. I do not care about somebodies sexual orientation . this is formed in the womb and has nothing to do about that person ,so let us not judge. I read a report not too long ago published by a prestigious British University that a homosexual mans left side of the brain behaves and functions like a heterosexual woman and the left side of the brain of a lesbian woman functions like a heterosexual man. It is the hormonal secretion of testosterone in males) or estrogen(in females)that is it in the West it is more accepted but in Middle East is more hush hush.

        Rafic i am not really picking on him because he might homosexual. But what I am trying to say that I heard Syria got him by the balls because he was caught with another man. Second he was also totally in debts and Syria kept the first secret and they helped him financially. That’s why he’s so much loyal to Syria. If you really review the history of Talal Father, he was always against anyone who’s attacking Lebanon. He was actually aligned with the Christians all his life and the prior gov’t. So Talal is strange bird and the only he’s acting like that because he’s was cornered and soddomized..

          right on george, i hope for the sake of making the people of lebanon aware and informed to make better future political decisions that we should keep exposing the truth about all of the sold out politicians, pseudo “leaders” and even some religious figures that are plaguing our country.

          believe me there are plenty of them from all sides and sects hiding behind their shiny but false democratic slogans.

    the only way to help lebanon and its people get rid of most of the parasite “leaders”plaguing their country, who are by the way very sensitive when it comes to their own reputation, is to expose their little dirty secrets and deals out in the open.

    • Ghzayel,

      “the only way to help lebanon and its people get rid of most of the parasite “leaders”plaguing their country, who are by the way very sensitive when it comes to their own reputation, is to expose their little dirty secrets and deals out in the open”.

      U stated the above,I understand this is in reference to all March 8 leaders,so im not gonna bother asking who do you seperate from march 8 from this option,but my quesition is do you believe that march 14 leaders deserve this option, if any?

      Cant someone from March 8 same the same exact line about someone like gmayel etc that did the same exact thing whn they were forming a goveremnt under harriri,didnt he threaten to leave harriris alliance if he didnt get the goverment share for his party….Lets try to be a little more objective,it will get us further in understanding eachother….

        michael,
        if you have red my post carefully you would have found i did not specifically make any distinction between 8th and 14th of march “leaders” or any other groups.
        in my humble opinion, and even though i tend to favor the cedar’s revolution of 2005 and the ideology on which it was found, i firmly believe one can find parasite leaders in most of the political groups in lebanon.

        • ghzayel,

          Fair enough…even though we dont agree politically on the based strong core of our beliefs in what we consider
          right for Lebanon or detremental to Lebanon,I will say I think we can both agree that both sides need some changes
          in some of there views and both sides should try to make these changes in order to get calm and peace back to the
          land,cause it seems the way its going brother ,we are on our way to a civil disaster…Good Day
