Political sources were asked about the speeches by several lawmakers during this week's Parliament sessions that reported the Sunni community in the country was feeling frustrated, especially given that Prime Minister Saad Hariri – himself a Sunni leader – heads the largest parliamentary bloc. The sources said that Hariri has not and will not go back on his political stances and values, and that the prime minister would not endear himself to Hezbollah. The source added that Hariri has been playing the role of "true statesman" since he assumed the role of prime minister after President Michel Aoun was elected on Oct. 31, 2016 . Playing down fears that the current "political understanding" between the president and the prime minister will fizzle out due to Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil's recent vocal stances, sources said Hariri would not allow it.Hariri assumed the role of prime minister following the assassination of his father, before his government was toppled while he was walking into a meeting with then U.S.-President Barrack Obama in 2011 .
