Hezbollah chief to appear on TV on Sunday, report

Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV reported that Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah will deliver a televised speech via video link Sunday at 8:30 p.m. during which he will address the latest developments.

Earlier today MP Mohammed al-Hajjar a member of the Democratic Gathering parliamentary bloc which is headed by MP Walid Jumblatt, told OTV : “The Hezbollah-led camp, which wants to impose a premier on the Lebanese, may decide to postpone the parliamentary consultations.”

According to observers if the report is true this can only mean that March 8 alliance is not sure that Jumblatt can deliver enough votes for their premiership candidate to win the nomination.

Lebanon’s Western-backed government collapsed Jan. 12 after Hezbollah and its allies resigned from the Cabinet in a dispute over a U.N. backed court investigating the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, father of current caretaker PM Saad Hariri.

The court, Special Tribunal for Lebanon ( STL) which is widely expected to accuse the Shiite Hezbollah militant group, filed a sealed draft indictment Monday, touching off a process many fear could ignite new bloodshed nearly six years after the massive truck bombing along Beirut’s waterfront that killed Hariri.

    President Suleiman is not manning up to the challenge. History will remember his cowardness and that of Jumblat is the nominations are postponed to give Hezbollah time to break a few more bones….
