The official in charge of international relations in the Lebanese Free Patriotic Movement, Tariq Sadiq, confirmed that “the movement will not name the former prime minister, Najib Mikati, as prime minister of the new government.”
Tariq Sadiq said on Twitter: “Al-Mikati is the candidate of the Americans and the corrupt regime, while Nawaf Salam was Lebanon’s ambassador to the United Nations and has an Arab history and a supporter of Palestine.”
He added: “With the understanding of Parliament Speaker, Nabih Berri, the former Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, and the head of the Progressive Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, they walk with Miqati, but why Hezbollah?”
An innocent question: Al-Mikati is the candidate of the Americans and the corrupt regime, while Nawaf Salam was Lebanon’s ambassador to the United Nations and has an Arab history and a supporter of Palestine.
I understand Berri, Hariri and Jumblatt walking in Miqati, but why is the party??
We will not name Al-Miqati and will give a short opportunity to form before resigning from the council.

The Arab newspaper, Asharq Al-Awsat, indicated that “the former head of the Lebanese government, Najib Mikati, is awaiting answers to “fundamental questions” before proceeding with the path of accepting his assignment to form the new government, in order to avoid repeating the experience of Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who apologized for not completing his mission due to the failure of “understanding”. With President Michel Aoun, many months after his assignment.
And the newspaper reported, quoting an informed source, that “Mikati deals positively with attempts to persuade him, based on his” constant bet on positivity,” but this does not mean that he does not appreciate the accuracy of the situation and does not know the difficulty of the task, which Hariri failed due to known circumstances.
