Hamadeh: To avoid further problems that hinder formation of government

Caretaker Minister of Education, Marwan Hamadeh, on Monday stepped up calls to avoid further problems that might hinder the formation of the government.

"The formation process is still stagnant, particularly with regard to the quota of the Democratic Gathering and the Lebanese Forces," he told the Voice of Lebanon radio station.

Moreover, the Minister ruled out the possibility of cabinet lineup progress by the beginning of September.

He finally anticipated a meeting between the President of the Republic and the Prime Minister-designate to discuss the distribution of ministerial portfolios and quotas.
