Future Movement Secretary-General Ahmad Hariri Thursday accused Hezbollah of seeking to establish a power-sharing formula divided between Sunnis, Shiites and Christians by weakening the country's finances and political system.In a statement, Hariri questioned the reasons behind Hezbollah MPs' support for the demands of civil servants to raise their wages as part of a new salary scale for the public sector. The Future bloc has refused to approve the new salary scale before proper means to finance the increase are established, arguing that Lebanon's ailing economy cannot tolerate more debt.Although Hezbollah has denied allegations that the party is seeking a new three-way power-sharing formula to replace the current one, which gives equal weight to Muslims and Christians, its rivals continue to accuse the group of seeking to change the governing system.
