March 14 MP Hadi Hobeish told LBC television on Tuesday that “Hezbollah is the party that will form the cabinet which will be headed by Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati”.
Commenting on the future of Lebanon under a Hezbollah -led cabinet he said
“The March 8 coalition exercises everything but democracy…its logic is that of threats.”
He stressed that Mikati’s cabinet will carry out the policies of Hezbollah-led March 8 and will confront the international community.
The Iranian- and Syria-backed Hezbollah brought down PM Saad 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 .
Mikati, who was backed by Hezbollah and its March 8 allies including MPs Walid Jumblatt and Mohammad Safadi, was appointed 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.
