MP Majdalani: Hezbollah hiding behind Aoun


Lebanon First bloc MP Atef Majdalani said during an interview late Wednesday evening with Future News , that the “governmental has already been formed by Hezbollah , which is trying to dominate the political scene through its spokesman MP Michel Aoun. ”

Majdalani pointed out that “Hezbollah is hiding behind Aoun to avoid Sunni – Shiite sensitivities . “

The Iranian and Syria-backed Hezbollah brought down Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) indictment which is widely expected to implicate Hezbollah members in the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri in 2005 .

MP Najib Mikati, backed Hezbollah and its March 8 allies including Jumblatt , was appointed last Tuesday by president Michel Suleiman as PM-designate to form and head the next cabinet , giving Hezbollah and its allies increased leverage in the country and provoking widespread protests.

The March 14 alliance is demanding that Mikati, a political moderate with good ties to Syria, guarantee he will not disavow the tribunal.
