Aoun and Suleiman lock horns over Cabinet demands

Share:

President Michel Suleiman and Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun remain at odds on Sunday over the interior ministry portfolio and the Aoun’s insistence to name most of the Christian ministers. Other March 8 parties reportedly also oppose Aoun’s demand.

Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati was appointed to the premiership on January 25 with the Hezbollah-led March 8 coalition’s backing and has called on all parties to join his cabinet, however there are dim hopes of forming a cabinet soon amid the bickering between Suleiman and Aoun.

Pan-Arab daily al-Hayat quoted Suleiman as saying that he is holding onto the interior ministry and his representation in the government. Suleiman has vowed not to sign a cabinet decree that “does not respect coexistence and harmony in representation.”

An Nahar said that Speaker Nabih Berri and Mikati contacted Aoun to wish him a happy birthday on Saturday. Berri reportedly asked Aoun about rumors that he would get the foreign instead of the interior ministry and in return the speaker would get the defense portfolio.

The speaker stressed to the FPM leader that the foreign portfolio will remain as part of his share in the new cabinet, the newspaper said ,hinting that Berri is also holding onto the foreign ministry and further complicating the task of Miqati to resolve the interior portfolio’s problem.

      Assad is trying to run Lebanon through his puppets. It is time for ALL the Lebanese people to wakeup and see reality. unless they want to become a new province of Greater Syria….
      Remember, Aoun is the same man who was hugging and kissing the Iranian regime leaders when he was in Tehran……

    Berri’s wish to Aoun on his 76th birthday: “3a2bel el 76 inshallah”

    Aoun wants to permanently change the Lebanese political landscape by changing the election laws by putting his hands on the Ministry of Interior. It’s not going to happen. Our President is not Walid Jumpalot.

    He’s out of his mind. That much I get. Fair Enough.
    What I don’t get are the voters that got him there.
    What I don’t get is how are half of the Christians are – and all of a sudden – in a coalition with Nasrallah.
    Is half the Lebanese community retarded?

      This is just Hezbollah game and they keep saying they’re sending someone from Amal or another from HA to get Aoun to soften up. But after all these MP’s will end up reporting to Nassrallah so it doesn’t matter what Aoun says, it matters what Nassrallah wants. But I hope Mikati resigns and this will put M8 back to square one. But the way they’re doing it, Mikati will resign and say screw you i don’t need this clown and his masters telling me what to do.

      Yes just like what the Syrian and Hezbollah did to Aoun Supporters when Jamil al Saadan was in charge. I guess you Aoun the slave of Syria and his stupid supporters never learn and never will. Why don’t ask your dictator Aoun to free his Soldiers in who are rotten in Syrian jails. Or is he too much of a coward to do that? or simply don’t care. to me either way whoever follow him is a looser just like you.

      1. What a nice complement….. Read the news and then stand in front of the mirror, you’ll see who is the looser. Your supporters are falling one after the other (Mubarak, Ghadaffi and next are the Saudis). The only stupid people are the ones that yap like you do and don’t know what AOUN is doing. Go ahead and ally yourself with the Christian killers. Aoun made big mistakes before and learned that the only way can survive in Lebanon is by allying our selves with Lebanese parties that respect us and have not done the massacres that your M14 allies have done to innocent Christians. We will protect you when you need protection because you will need it soon.
