BEIRUT: The Maronite church is considering inviting the leaders of Lebanon's major Christian parties to Bkirki to discuss efforts to break the Cabinet formation deadlock, Independence Movement leader MP Michel Mouawad said Wednesday following talks with Patriarch Bechara Rai.
Lebanon has been without a fully functioning government for nearly eight months.
Hariri was tasked with forming an all-inclusive Cabinet with "fair representation for all parties," almost seven months ago, but has repeatedly seen his efforts stumble as the opposing political parties bicker over the allocation of ministries and the size of their individual shares.
