Kataeb Calls for Government of Specialists
The Kataeb party on Tuesday urged President Michel Aoun and Premier-designate Saad Hariri to form a government of specialists and end wrangling between political parties over shares and portfolios.
Speaking during the party’s politburo weekly meeting, Kataeb chief Sami Gemayel sounded the alarm over “unprecedented conflict over shares and quotas, and the destructive logic that has prevailed," between political parties.
He said officials have “left the country bogged down in obstruction and its economic and political repercussions."
Gemayel appealed on Aoun and Hariri “to put an end to the futile debate on quotas, and take the initiative to form a government of specialists from outside political parties,” noting the domestic and foreign challenges facing the country.
