Khalil says opposition has two options: “Real” participation in cabinet or none at all

The Hezbollah secretary general’s political advisor Hajj Hussein Khalil and head of the Hezbollah Security Coordination Unit Wafiq Safa met with Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun in Rabieh on Tuesday.

Following the meeting, Khalil said that the opposition only has two options to choose from, either to have “real and effective participation” in the government or to refrain from joining it altogether if the proposed cabinet formula does not give the March 8 coalition a significant number of seats in the new cabinet.

“The two options determine the path of our deliberations with Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri.”

Khalil thanked all regional states willing to facilitate the cabinet formation, but stressed that the biggest effort must be made by the Lebanese.
