The six Hezbollah-backed Sunni MPs demanding representation in the next government will gather next week to decide their next move, after their request to meet with the prime minister-designate failed to yield results, the Central News Agency reported Saturday.MP Abdel-Rahim Mrad, one of the six MPs, told local news channel Al Jadeed that the group has yet to receive an answer after requesting Thursday to meet with Hariri.Future MP Sami Fatfat told the CNA Friday that Hariri was ready to meet the MPs as individuals, but not as a bloc because some of them already belonged to other parliamentary blocs, despite referring to themselves as "independent" Sunni MPs.
