Talks today point towards Seniora bending to the demands of Aoun's bloc to assume the Justice portfolio (so perhaps after all, the issue was partly the Justice Ministry seat?)
What does this mean? Does it mean that Seniora will resolve the other portfolio-related obstacle and hand the Foreign Ministry to the Hizbullah-Amal coalition? Isn't it only fair?
Again, I don't see how picking seats will resolve the major issues/obstacles our country faces right now. Perhaps we should be reminded that this is a Cabinet and not a Senate. Jumblatt can have the Interior, Hizbullah can have the Foreign, Aoun can have the Justice, Hariri can have the Finance...but in principle, this does not mean that Ministers can have their own One-Man Shows. I admit that a "National Unity" government can take longer to achieve its intended goals, because you almost have a mini-Opposition within the government itself...and "Opposition" (the act) is becoming a fashionable thing to do right now (or hasn't it been always?).
This will be indeed the Cabinet that will put our resilience and wisdom to the test...
