Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt suggested on Sunday that Hezbollah should form the new government on its own

“In my previous statement to PSP’s al-Anbaa, I said that Iran was waiting to engage in dialogue with the new U.S. administration and that a government of specialists is some sort of heresy, which sparked an uproar,” Jumblatt tweeted.

“But today as the winds of confrontation blow from every direction, wouldn’t it be better to let the resistance camp be in charge of the country along with its partners?” Jumblatt added.

“Why should we get involved and participate while we will not have a say in anything?” the PSP leader went on to say in a possible reference to his party and PM-designate Saad Hariri’s Future Movement.

Ever since Israel withdrew from Lebanon , Hezbollah has used its arms to increase Iran’s influence in Lebanon . For the past 15 years no government could be formed in Lebanon , or a president elected without a green light from Iran .
