Al-Nahar wrote: Although the complete stalemate yesterday surrounded everything related to the process of forming the government after a tumultuous day of sharp debates, which re-shed light on the nature of the relationship between President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati, despite all the declared “friendliness” between them. The last hours left a clear impression that any decisive guarantee regarding the possibility of overcoming the last obstacles in the composition was not available yet, as evidenced by the absence of any data on the possibility of agreement on holding the fourteenth meeting between Aoun and Mikati at the beginning of next week. However, information obtained by Al-Nahar last night seemed to pave the way for an imminent settlement of the experience of assigning President Najib Mikati, positively or negatively, at the beginning of next week. Well-informed sources revealed to “Al-Nahar” that new data were available to them about a new direction by Prime Minister Mikati to propose an “executive salvation government” that would bring the country out of the catastrophic crisis, and it consists of 14 ministers whose names are as follows: Najib Mikati, Tammam Salam, Bahia Hariri, Suleiman Franjieh, Ibrahim Kanaan, George Adwan, Yassin Jaber, Muhammad Fneish, Jihad Mortada, Walid Jumblatt, Agop Pakradounian, Farid Makari, Elias Murr, Ghassan Salameh. According to this information, Mikati is going to present this formation to the President of the Republic, the first of next week.
In this information, Mikati is heading to present this formation to the President of the Republic the first of next week, and that if Aoun rejects it, Mikati is heading to turn the table permanently without knowing the decision he will take.
