With the step taken by President Aoun, the country is heading towards a process of mixing political cards, which will begin to emerge in succession with the main political forces announcing their positions on what is happening. This started with former Prime Minister Najib Mikati, who yesterday in an interview with LBCI channel renewed his candidacy for President Saad Hariri at the head of a techno-political government (6 political ministers and 14 technocrats), which is subject to Hariri’s acceptance, who will appear today on the program. It is now “on MTV” channel, and it is likely that he will state his position on this nomination, while informed sources said that “Hariri will respond to the accusations against him regarding disrupting the government, but he will not use a high ceiling against Hezbollah.”
In any case, there is one constant, which is that the French initiative is still in place, and that there is no tendency to form a government of one color. This constant leads to the fact that the only options available to the forces involved in forming the government are either to return to negotiations with Hariri himself to assign him to form a government or to agree with him on a specific name. But the first option, according to informed sources, had great obstacles. Hariri has not yet decided his position, and he may come out soon to say that he rejects this mission. Although “Hariri is still the preferred name for Speaker Nabih Berri, despite his reservations about many matters, and it is an option that Hezbollah will not oppose,” yet the big problem lies in President Aoun’s position on him, as well as former minister Gebran Bassil. The latter categorically rejects Hariri’s return to the Serail. In order to block the road, information circulated stating that “Bassil is working to float Ambassador Mustafa Adib again.” While the sources of the Free Patriotic Movement deny this, Al-Akhbar learned that “Adeeb has received many calls from Beirut asking him to return,” but he “refuses to do so before reaching a final agreement, as he wants guarantees that allow him to compose as soon as he comes.”
The negativity accompanying the government scene was overtaken by the announcement by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian that the second international conference for aid to Lebanon after the huge explosion in the Beirut port will take place in November, not in October.
Le Drian explained that this conference would allow a “transition to the second stage”, which is the stage of “rebuilding” the port and the affected neighborhoods in Beirut, after a first stage called “emergency”. It was remarkable that he warned once again of “the disintegration of Lebanon, and rather of its demise if a government is not quickly formed and structural reforms are not carried out.”
