The Future Movement announced its intention to stand firm Friday night on the concept of rotating ministerial portfolios in a new Cabinet in what appeared to be a response to MP Michel Aoun's insistence on retaining the Energy and Telecoms ministries to his bloc.The 10-month-old Cabinet crisis continues, as Aoun continues to oppose the compromise agreed upon by all other parties to rotate ministerial portfolios among sects and parties. He also opposes the all-embracing 8-8-8 Cabinet supported by his March 8 allies, Jumblatt and Future. MP Ammar Houri said the Future Movement and its March 14 allies adhered to the principle of rotating ministerial portfolios in line with the 8-8-8 Cabinet lineup agreement.
