Future Movement lawmakers Monday accused Hezbollah of reneging on a deal that would see the formation of an all-embracing government by resorting to excuses and enlisting its allies in the March 8 alliance to sabotage the birth of a new Cabinet.Political sources last week told The Daily Star that the Cabinet formation process, which has been ongoing for 11 months, was still at an impasse over objections by Hezbollah over the allotting of two security ministries to the March 14 coalition.In January, the leader of the Future Movement, former Prime Minister Saad Hariri, paved the way for the formation of an all-embracing government after saying he would be willing to share power with Hezbollah in the next Cabinet. Future Movement MP Mohammad Hajjar alleged Hezbollah was obstructing the formation, reflecting what he said was a pattern of reneging on agreement by the Lebanese group.
