Hezbollah Says Lebanon Govt Delay Risks Negative Implications

BEIRUT – The parliamentary bloc of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group said on Thursday that delay in forming a new government risked Lebanon sliding “towards tension”.

“(The delay) has started to risk sliding towards tension … and we warn of the dangers of this,” the group said in a televised statement read out after the weekly meeting of its parliamentary bloc.

Lebanon held a general election on May 6, in which the Shi’ite Hezbollah and its parliamentary allies won a majority of seats. But the country’s rival blocs have not yet agreed on the composition of a new cabinet.
