Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri received this evening at the Center House the head of the Progressive Socialist Party, former MP Walid Jumblatt, accompanied by Minister Wael Abou Faour, in the presence of former Minister Ghattas Khoury. 

The meeting focused on the political developments in the country.

Upon leaving the Center House, Jumblatt refused to make any statement. Hariri said in a chat with reporters that he supports the designation of Engineer Samir Khatib for the Premiership, but there are still some details to finalize and everyone is seeking to overcome this difficult stage. 

In response to another question, he said that he did not set conditions and that the Prime Minister is the one who forms the government.

Question: Will you participate in the government?

Hariri: Not through political figures but through technocrats.
