Prime Minister Najib Mikati hinted that he will resign if his government fails to provide its annual share of funding to the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
Report: Hezbollah to topple Lebanon government if it funds Hariri tribunal (Haaretz)
Cabinet may not be held on Wednesday in light of the Change and Reform ministers’ boycott of Friday’s government session, reported the Kuwaiti al-Seyassah newspaper on Sunday.
Prominent March 14 parliamentary sources told the daily that Hizbullah and the Free Patriotic Movement will not allow cabinet to convene ever again.
This means that government will not be held any time soon, which also means that the funding of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon will not be addressed, they added.
Prime Minister Najib Mikati announced on Wednesday that he transferred Lebanon’s annual share of funding to a UN court probing the murder of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri.
“I have transferred this morning Lebanon’s share of funding to the tribunal… out of my keenness to protect Lebanon,” Mikati told reporters during a conference at the Grand Serail.
Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah will deliver a speech on Thursday to address Prime Minister Najib Mikati’s announcement of the transfer of Lebanon’s share of funding to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, Al-Manar television reported on Wednesday.
