The March 14-led opposition is scheduled to hold a large-scale meeting on Sunday to come up with a roadmap that would “topple the cabinet of the Hizbullah-Syria alliance.”

Al-Mustaqbal daily said that the meeting would take place at 6:00 pm at the Bristol Hotel in Beirut. More than 300 guests are invited. They include March 14 officials and members of the civil society who are mainly youths.

The conferees will discuss the cabinet’s policy statement and the indictment that was issued by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri’s assassination case on Thursday.

According to al-Mustaqbal, the preparations for the meeting took two days. Organizers discussed the main points that Sunday’s conference would deal with and put a “roadmap” for March 14’s future moves.

The conference, which has the slogan of “the tribunal our way to salvation,” will pave way for peaceful and popular movements that would be aimed at “toppling the cabinet of the Hizbullah-Syria alliance.”

March 14 accuses Premier Najib Miqati’s cabinet of aiming at implementing the policies of Hizbullah and its ally Syria.

The closing statement of the conference will call on the Lebanese to hold onto the national principles and coexistence and will show pride at the opposition’s ability to achieve justice in Hariri’s Feb. 2005 murder, al-Mustaqbal said.

It added that the statement will announce a democratic confrontation at the parliament during the sessions set for discussing the policy statement and giving the vote of confidence to the cabinet starting next Tuesday
