The Cabinet will be back in business this week following a one-month paralysis and uncertainty caused by Hariri's shock resignation from Riyadh on Nov. 4, in line with top leaders' expressions of optimism about resolving the political crisis. President Michel Aoun, who returned from a three-day official visit to Italy Friday, is set to chair a Cabinet session at Baabda Palace Tuesday or Thursday, the first since Hariri's resignation, an official source told The Daily Star. According to the source, the Cabinet will issue a statement after its meeting dealing with the main reasons behind Hariri's resignation, particularly the need for all the parties, including Hezbollah, to abide by the policy of dissociation."We support the reconvening of the Cabinet because this Cabinet has gained Parliament's confidence and [Aoun's] swearing-in speech reflected the aspirations of the Lebanese people and boosted Lebanon's position," Sheikh Mohammad Yazbek, head of Hezbollah's Shariah Council, told a ceremony marking Prophet Mohammad's Birthday in the Bekaa town of Shaath. He praised the "wise and patriotic" stances of Aoun and Speaker Nabih Berri in handling the crisis over Hariri's resignation.
