Loyalty to Resistance bloc calls for swift formation of unifying national unity cabinet

Loyalty to Resistance parliamentary bloc called on Thursday for the swift formation of a “unifying national unity cabinet”, adding that next government’s top priorities should be “the drafting of a modern electoral law that achieves fair and comprehensive representation for all the Lebanese people, enhancing security and economic stability, and dealing with the citizens’ living conditions.”

The bloc’s remarks were made in a statement issued after its weekly meeting and only a few hours after Saad Hariri was officially asked to form a new government.

As for the election of Michel Aoun as president on Monday, Loyalty to Resistance said that “holding the presidential election was a key victory for Lebanon and for the will of accord among the Lebanese people,” hoping it will be “the start of a new era in Lebanon’s political history marked by national resolve to practice real national sovereignty.”
