Derbas: Going to doomed meeting tomorrow

July 27, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Social Affairs minister, Rashid Derbas, described the cabinet’s meeting tomorrow as doomed, saying that “politicians have shown immense incompetence.”

Derbas said “Salam is a patient person and knows how to shoulder responsibilities, but he knows what action to take if he reached a dead end.”

Responding to Hizbullah General Secretary, Al-Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s latest speech, Derbas said “some (persons) do not want to leave anything to the cabinet’s presidency and Premier Salam is not willing to give up any of the Premiership authorities,” adding that MP Michel Aoun and his allies do not constitute legal quorum to approve appointments.
