The head of the deputies and of Amal, Nabih Berri, prohibited his followers from issuing any statement about Aoun’s insinuation regarding those guilty of the boycott of the Government.
According to the Lebanese president, the premeditated, systematic and unjustified obstruction that leads to the disintegration of institutions and the dissolution of the state must be put to an end, alluding to the suspension of cabinet sessions since last October.
“It is necessary that the Government meet as soon as possible to address the problems of the country. Under what law, logic or Constitution is the Cabinet paralyzed?” Aoun asked.
The circles close to Amal and Hizbulah considered it inappropriate to respond, because the head of state neither named nor pointed to either of the groups, whose representatives decline the calls of the Executive in demand of the dismissal of the judge in charge of the investigation for the explosion at the port in August 2020.
“Aoun was quite critical of a corrupt system, in general,” said an unidentified source of one of the groups.
According to the testimony, the defense strategy and administrative and financial decentralization mentioned by the president do not bother Amal and Hezbollah at all, which will be the first to support amendments on these issues.
