Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumbat on Sunday commented on the protracted delay in the government formation process.
“The world is waiting for several news. Maritime navigation and global trade are awaiting the rescue and reopening of the Suez Canal, while a regional axis is awaiting the lifting of sanctions without preconditions in order to consolidate its hegemony,” Jumblat tweeted, in an apparent reference to the Iran-led axis.
“The question today is: what kind of mines or sanctions, be them individual or collective, is preventing the formation of the government in Lebanon?” he wondered.
Jumblat met Saturday in Mukhtara with Saudi Ambassador to Lebanon Walid Bukhari. He also met with President Michel Aoun in Baabda earlier in March.
