OTV: Nahhas intends to resign

Labor Minister Charbel Nahhas on Tuesday informed Change and Reform bloc leader MP Michel Aoun of his intention to resign from the cabinet, OTV reported.

However, Nahhas’ proposed resignation will be discussed during the bloc’s meeting, which will be held later on Tuesday, the report added.

OTV also denied all media reports that Nahhas has submitted his resignation to Prime Minister Najib Mikati.

Nahhas has repeatedly said that he refuses to sign the decree on transportation allowances, which was agreed upon in Baabda in December between the Economic Committees and the General Workers Union, because it is “illegal for the cabinet to specify transportation allowances.”
