The sputtering Cabinet formation process hit a new hurdle Thursday, with Hezbollah voicing its objection to allotting two security ministries to the March 14 coalition, political sources said.Other sources said that Hezbollah opposed granting the Interior Ministry to the Future Movement and the Defense Ministry to another March 14 figure as initially agreed.The agreement ended nine months of Cabinet impasse during which the Future Movement refused to join a government with Hezbollah before the party withdrew its fighters from Syria.For its part, Hezbollah said it would only support a government based on the 9-9-6 lineup. Future Movement MP Ahmad Fatfat said Hezbollah was pushing Aoun to stand firm on his opposition regarding rotation because the party was not interested in having a new government in the first place.
