Hezbollah obstructing Lebanon's gov't formation: observers


The conditions set by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah to disrupt the formation of Lebanon's government has no justification but to satisfy Iran, observers say.

What is Hezbollah's role in Lebanon? Does Nasrallah consider himself and his elements as Lebanese people who care about their homeland?

The militia has threatened to obstruct negotiations to form the Lebanese government unless Nasrallah imposes his terms on the formation of the government.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has threatened to obstruct negotiations if his Sunni allies are not represented in the government.

"There is no national logic, no moral logic, no legal logic, no political logic and no logic of national interest for anyone to go out in Lebanon and say that the March 8 Alliance is not allowed to be represented in the Lebanese government," Nasrallah said.

Hezbollah, which is designated by the US and many other countries as a terrorist organization, also refused to deal with Lebanon's national demands to be disarmed and to respect the military institution charged with defending the country.

Lebanese MP Mohammed Suleiman earlier said that the Hezbollah militia has created an obstacle to the formation of the government for personal purposes.

Suleiman said that the Iranian-backed Hezbollah knows very well that four of the six MPs from the March 8 Alliance who the party wants to be appointed as ministers are members of three parliamentary blocs that would already be represented in the new government.

Suleiman expressed his appreciation of Lebanese President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri for rejecting this demand, as it is unconstitutional, in light of their keenness to protect national unity in Lebanon. He stressed that the Lebanese people will not accept Hezbollah's attempts to disrupt their lives.

He added that the government needs to be formed as soon as possible in order to achieve stability in the country and address its various problems, including the economic situation.
