Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt refused to comment on the latest developments concerning Cabinet formation efforts, in clear frustration with the outcome of mediation attempts aimed at resolving differences over an all-embracing national government.Jumblatt, through caretaker Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour, was heavily involved in mediation efforts to facilitate the formation of a national unity government based on an 8-8-8 lineup, a compromise agreement reached last month by the PSP, the Hezbollah-led March 8 bloc and the Future Movement to break the 10-month-old Cabinet deadlock.Jumblatt has also warned against forming a fait accompli Cabinet, vowing not to join any government unless the two main Shiite groups, Hezbollah and the Amal Movement, were represented in it.
