Jumblat Calls Participation of March 14 in Cabinet an ‘Illusion’

Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat said that the March 14 coalition has already made up its decision not to participate in Premier-designate Najib Miqati’s cabinet.

“March 14 has made up its mind and we have done so as well,” Jumblat told As Safir daily in remarks published Friday.

He called an “illusion” the possible participation of March 14 in the government.

“The issue is not about the distribution of seats. The issue is about a choice” that an alliance makes in taking part in the cabinet or not, the Druze leader said.

“We should get ready to become a political team with a unified vision,” he added.
