As PM-designate Saad Hariri continues to hold discussions with the various heads of the parliamentary blocs to form a new government, political sources said the Mustaqbal movement leader has promised better representation for Christian leaders within the March 14 coalition. 

Press reports on Thursday said Hariri had promised Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea and Phalange Party chief Amin Gemayel better representation in the new Cabinet.

The move came following persistent demands by March 14 Christian leaders for a better representation after their previous request had been rejected.

The move also came as Lebanon waits to see the repercussions of the Syrian-Saudi summit on the Lebanese government path.
