Lebanon's Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri has given the president
a proposed Cabinet line-up for a new national unity government.
Mr. Hariri said Monday that he asked President Michel Suleiman to approve a 30-seat Cabinet based on a 15-10-5 division.
prime minister-designate says his own "March 14" alliance should get 15
of the 30 seats. The Hezbollah-led opposition would get 10 seats, and
the president would appoint the other five ministers.
Opposition leaders say they have not agreed to the proposal.
after Mr. Hariri's announcement, Christian leader and Hezbollah ally
Michel Aoun accused the prime minister-designate of not being serious
about forming a government. He said Mr. Hariri simply "wants to play
with the Cabinet according to his mood."
Hariri has been trying to put together a Cabinet since he was named
prime minister in late June, but politicians have disagreed about the
distribution of key posts.
