‘The meeting with Aoun was important, with slow progress, but the decision to form an executive prevailed,’ he said.
Mikati rejected comments about his resignation, although he commented that if there is a dead end, he will tell the Lebanese.
Lebanon lacks an effective new government since August 10, 2020, and Mohammad Adid and Saad Hariri passed through the nomination process without success.
In less than a week, Mikati and Aoun had five contacts, but they have not so far solved the rotation of the Ministries of Interior, Defense, Finance and Foreign Affairs.
The new Lebanese cabinet will include 24 ministries with figures without affiliation to political parties, but to their religious origin as the Constitution establishes.
