President Michel Aoun will urge the prime minister-designate to meet with six Hezbollah-backed Sunni MPs in a bid to reach a compromise on their representation that will eventually clear the way for a national unity government, political sources said Friday.Caretaker Youth and Sports Minister Mohammad Fneish, one of two Hezbollah ministers in the outgoing Cabinet, said the key to resolving the problem is with Hariri accepting to meet with the MPs.A senior Future Movement official praised Aoun's initiative, but said Hariri would not bow to pressure from Hezbollah and the six MPs.We don't mind a 30- or 24- or 18-member Cabinet," he added.The six MPs, however, stood firm on their demand to be represented in the next Cabinet by one of their group.Future MP Dima Jamali said Hariri would not accept any of the six MPs to be named as a minister.
