BEIRUT: The Future Movement has yet to receive satisfactory answers from the March 8 coalition on a series of questions that could pave the way for agreement on the next government, MP Nuhad Mashnouq said Friday.

“We put the five questions forward as a foundation [for accepting or rejecting a Cabinet formation] and we still haven’t received a yes or no or clear answers,” he told LBC.

On Wednesday, the Future Movement demanded answers to five questions before accepting a new Cabinet proposal based on an 8-8-8 lineup.

Mashnouq said his party has yet to receive clear answers “on the blocking third, the Baabda Declaration in the policy statement, the formation of the Cabinet, the rotation of ministerial seats and the legitimate right to veto the name of a candidate that both the president and prime minister-designate reject.”

He said he had been tasked by former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora to discuss with former Prime Minister Saad Hariri “the issue of the five questions that we put forward that would allow us to decide whether to accept or reject a Cabinet formation.”

“There is an ongoing discussion but there is no agreement up until now and the foundations of the ongoing talks for all of us are the five questions that were outlined in the past 24 hours,” he said.

He also said President Michel Sleiman, Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam and MP Walid Jumblatt were contacting various sides to bring viewpoints closer.
