Qaouq Slams Parties Seeking to 'Weaken Presidency'
A senior Hizbullah official on Monday accused certain political parties in Lebanon of seeking to “weaken” President Michel Aoun's tenure.
“Hizbullah and the AMAL Movement are greatly facilitating the formation of the government,” Hizbullah central council member Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said.
“It is not the Presidency that is delaying the formation of the cabinet, but rather political forces whose names and identities have become well-known,” Qaouq added, noting that Aoun's presidential term is being “harmed” by the ongoing delay.
“They are deliberately delaying the formation of the government in order to weaken the president's tenure. They are not serving the country but rather proving that they cannot be entrusted with the interests of the country and its citizens,” the Hizbullah official went on to say.
