As always seems to be case, certain parties continue to jockey for a better arrangement in regard to seats and portfolios well into the eleventh hour, in the process creating seemingly insurmountable hurdles to the formation of a new Cabinet.Now optimism again reigns about a solution, as expressed by Hariri and other top politicians, garnering hope among the Lebanese, especially now with international warnings about Lebanon's standing and notices of downgrades from rating agencies. Still, we have previously witnessed such rising hopes of an imminent solution, only to be disappointed as yet another absurd demand sends the formation process back to square one.
