MP Nawwaf al-Moussawi of Hizbullah on Sunday said he “advises” al-Mustaqbal Movement against showing “stubbornness” on the issue of representing the so-called opposition Sunni MPs in the new cabinet.

Addressing Hariri, Moussawi also stressed that the MPs Osama Saad, Faisal Karami, Jihad al-Samad and Abdul Rahim Mrad are true representatives of their electorates in Sidon, Tripoli, Dinniyeh and West Bekaa.
“They won through Sunni votes,” Moussawi emphasized.
“Stability in Lebanon and resolving its crises are based on the pluralism of sectarian representation, that's why we advise the brothers in al-Mustaqbal Movement not to deal stubbornly or intransigently with the issue of political and partisan pluralism in the Sunni community,” Moussawi said.
“In the Shiite community, there are the AMAL Movement and Hizbullah, and some might say that we are allied and this is true, so let there be pluralism in the Sunni community and let them be allied,” the MP suggested.
The new cabinet was on the verge of formation last Monday after the Lebanese Forces accepted the portfolios that were assigned to it but a last-minute hurdle over the representation of pro-Hizbullah Sunni MPs surfaced.
Hizbullah has backed the MPs' demand and refrained from providing Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri with the names of its own ministers in a bid to press him to accept giving a seat to the aforementioned Sunni grouping.
“The results of the parliamentary elections must be respected in the formation of the government. This has been and is still our unchanged stance,” Moussawi said on Sunday.
Noting that the so-called Sunni obstacle is not new, the MP pointed out that Hizbullah “had always called for addressing this issue.”
“There are 27 Sunni MPs in parliament – 17 for al-Mustaqbal bloc and 10 MPs outside of al-Mustaqbal bloc – so should we deal with these lawmakers as if they don't exist?” Moussawi added.
