Progressive Socialist Party leader in remarks published in the Lebanon's The Daily Star on Saturday said that Hezbollah should be included in Lebanon's next government.

Walid Jumblatt Jumblatt told the daily As-Safir: “I believe in the principle of Hezbollah's participation in the government, whether directly or indirectly, since it is not possible to isolate anyone or abolish anyone.”
