Hezbollah calls for unity govt

Lebanon: Hezbollah has called on new Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati to form a national unity Government while former Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s supporters have resorted to violence.

Hezbollah and its allies in the March 8 Alliance, which includes Amal and the Free Patriotic Movement, will try to form a national unity government, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has said.

“We don’t seek to (exclude) anyone,” Nasrallah stated in a televised speech late Monday night, on the eve of Parliamentary talks between Lebanese President Michel Sleiman and lawmakers from the 128-seat Parliament. “The Lebanese people have a real chance to unite without winners or losers,” Nasrallah said on Tuesday.

The government headed by Saad Hariri of the March 14 Alliance collapsed on January 12 over a United Nations inquiry into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, Saad’s father, when the March 8 Alliance Ministers resigned from the Cabinet. Nasrallah thanked Druze leader Walid Jumblatt, who said last week he would support Hezbollah and its allies in the Parliamentary talks to choose a new Premier.

Jumblatt was once a key ally of former Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri.
