August 23, 2010 - Naharnet - Abdullah: Opposition Cabinet Ministers Not Quitting over STL Indictment

Youth and Sports Minister Ali Abdullah said Monday that Opposition and Shiite Cabinet ministers will not quit following a possible indictment of Hizbullah members in the 2005 assassination of ex-PM Rafik Hariri.
"The issue of withdrawal of Opposition ministers has not been raised and there is no such thing," Abdullah said in an interview with Akhbar al-Yom news agency when asked whether pro-Hizbullah ministers would quit Cabinet in the event Hizbullah members were implicated in the Hariri killing.
He stressed that Opposition ministers were committed to the government of national unity.
On the ongoing electricity crisis, Abdullah said: "We should reach a settlement to the problem of power rationing."
However, he pointed out that such solutions take time and effort.
