Senior Hariri advisor told me this: when Fu'ad As-Sanyurah was forming his cabinet, he went to see Parliament Speaker Nabih Birri. He told Birri: "I plan to close down the Council of the South." Birri said: "Only if you close down the Fund for the Displaced People." (Both of them have become cash machines for sectarian leaders, Birri and Jumblat).
