Sources close to Baabda Palace say that President Michel Sleiman is in a hurry to draft Cabinet's policy statement and have the government gain a vote of confidence from Parliament before March 5, the date set for the International Support Group for Lebanon's conference in Paris that Sleiman will be attending.Sources close to the presidential palace pointed out that the main goal behind reviving National Dialogue would be to calm the panic on the streets and allow for certain political tensions in the country to be vented.The National Dialogue issue is to be handed to former Environment Minister Nazem Khoury, who will soon begin his work following up on various political files within the presidential palace, as Sleiman requested.
