The six pro-Hezbollah Sunni MPs whose demand for representation in the next Cabinet is stalling the government formation said Monday that any initiative that does not recognize their "right" to a ministerial portfolio will not "have any life".A political source told The Daily Star Friday that a key element of Aoun's initiative called for the six lawmakers to be allotted a minister from the president's share, who would be a compromise candidate from outside their group.The issue of their representation has obstructed the formation of a new government since late October, as Hezbollah has abstained from presenting the names of its three ministers in the new Cabinet until the Sunni MPs' demand is met.
