March 14 Likely to Announce Boycott of Cabinet Soon

The March 14 forces will reportedly announce their official stance not to participate in the new government in the next 48 hours, paving the way for Premier-designate Najib Miqati to form a one-sided cabinet.
Caretaker Labor Minister Butros Harb told An Nahar daily in remarks published Thursday that "nothing encourages (us) to participate in the cabinet particularly that the other team's stance from the March 14 principles is not clear."

He accused the March 8 coalition of seeking to have "hegemony" over state institutions.

"We are heading towards announcing (our decision) in the next 48 hours. It is probably a negative response," Harb told An Nahar.

The caretaker minister stressed that March 14 was insisting on not repeating the mistakes of the previous government. "We hold onto the democratic system in which the majority rules and the minority opposes in parliament."

Harb's remarks came as March 14 leaders confirmed to pan-Arab daily al-Hayat that the alliance's officials were holding talks to announce their unified stance from the cabinet.

They said the alliance would most probably not participate in the government after Miqati made unclear stances on its demands to keep Lebanon committed to the international tribunal and resolve the problem of arms.

The sources confirmed that the coalition had started to prepare for the March 14 Cedar Revolution anniversary on the basis of being the new opposition.

Meanwhile, Voice of Lebanon radio reported on Thursday that Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri is expected to announce during the next two days a clear position on the developments related to the government formation.

It said that he will designate the March 14 camp's direction during the upcoming phase in Lebanon, as well as reveal the details of the consultations between the camp and Miqati, including the real reasons why the camp will refrain from taking part in the new Cabinet.
