Hizbullah Bloc Nominates Berri for Speakership, Urges Fast Govt. Formation
Hizbullah's Loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc on Wednesday called for the re-election of Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri to his post, as it urged a quick cabinet formation process.
In a statement issued after its weekly meeting, the bloc noted that the upcoming period requires addressing “the economic and social affairs” and “a lot of vigilance, wisdom and firm stances.”
It also pledged to “strive for protecting the country and preserving sovereignty according to the army-people-resistance equation.”
And as it announced its “nomination of Speaker Nabih Berri for the speakership of the new parliament,” the bloc called on all new MPs to re-elect him.
Loyalty to Resistance also called for “electing the members of the Parliament Bureau and expediting the formation of the government,” noting that “there is a certain interest for Lebanon and the Lebanese in this, especially during this period that cannot witness any waste of time.”
