Speaker Nabih Berri voiced readiness to cooperate with Michel Aoun, showing optimism over the new Lebanese president's intentions to build the nation.Hariri was designated for the premiership by the newly-elected President Michel Aoun Thursday, after receiving the support of 112 out of 126 MPs during two-days of binding consultations.Turning to Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's authorization of Berri to negotiate on behalf of the group and his own Development and Liberation bloc over the new Cabinet's portfolios, Berri said that the arrangement reflects the "alliance and strategic relationship" between the two groups.Berri added that Aoun cannot demand to have his own ministers in the new Cabinet, as he will be representing his own party, the Free Patriotic Movement.
