Report: PSP Delegation to Visit Berri Monday
A Progressive Socialist Party delegation, possibly led by its chief and Democratic Gathering parliamentary bloc MP Taymour Jumblat, will reportedly visit Speaker Nabih Berri to discuss the latest developments as per the Cabinet formation, al-Joumhouria daily reported Monday.
PSP sources have “asserted their trust in Berri at all levels,” amid concerns of a setback for the formation process following the latest positive drive among political parties.
“In view of the urgent economic and non-economic necessities, we have always called for a speedy government formation, but not at our own expense,” PSP sources told the daily on condition of anonymity.
The PSP has “taken into consideration a number of debatable proposals in order to facilitate the process, but some insist on ignoring the reality and plan to impose new standards which we totally reject,” they added.
Two obstacles still hamper PM-designate Saad Hariri’s formation process mission mainly the Druze and Christian representation.
