Lebanon on Friday formed a 30-member national unity government, seven weeks after an accord which saved the country from the brink of renewed civil war, cabinet secretary general Suhayl Buji announced. The lineup was named in a decree signed by President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Fuad Siniora. The accord between Lebanon's political rivals sealed in Doha on May 21 allocated 16 cabinet seats to the Western-backed parliamentary majority and 11 to the opposition led by Hezbollah, giving it veto powers. The new cabinet follows a political crisis which lasted more than a year and a half since Hezbollah and its allies stepped down from government in November 2006, shortly after the Hezbollah-Israel war.
