UPDATE2: Aoun said yesterday that he will contest the government lineup before the Constitutional Council if Lahoud agrees to it. Aoun claims that the lineup does not uphold the Constitutional principle of balanced national representation (i.e.: he's not represented)....I wonder what works for Aoun...
UPDATE: I updated the lineup based on official sources; there are some considerable changes, so read over.
Okay, this is the lineup that Seniora presented to Lahoud today morning. There are some changes made to the mix, however all in all it looks like the original lineup that Seniora prepared before Aoun's agreement to join the government. The lineup basically has a mix between technocrats, Parliamentarians from the Hariri/Jumblatt/Qornet Shehwan/Lebanese Forces bloc, Hizbullah/Amal's bloc, and Lahoud's allies (whom he asked to be represented). Sources say that this government lineup is blessed by HA/Amal.
We're left with Lahoud's agreement now, who already issued a statement saying that he encouraged Seniora to return to the negotiating table with Aoun. Is this a joke??!!!

Jihad Azour (Finance), Charles Rizk (Culture), Nayla Moawwad (Social Affairs), Joe Sarkis (Tourism), Pierre Gemayel (Industry)
