Mikati’s government in Parliament for gaining confidence

Najib Mikati’s government will represented this morning before Parliament to gain its confidence.

It is expected that the Mikati government, which completed its ministerial statement at a record speed, will win the confidence of 90 to 100 deputies out of the 117 deputies in the incomplete parliament, as a result of eight resignations following port of Beirut explosion, and the death of 3 deputies.

The new government is likely to gain the confidence of the Free Patriotic Movement bloc and the Future Movement, while the Lebanese Forces and a few independents will withhold confidence from the government they view, as representing the team that led Lebanon to collapse, and one of its components, is Hezbollah militia, which continues the policy of bypassing the state.

The new Lebanese government was formed after more than a year of vacancy, at a time when the country is witnessing an aggravation in the collapse of the economic situation.

Ater the government formation, Prime Minister Najib Mikati said in a press conference: “ We need the Arab world, .. We belong to the Arab world and we need it, and we will knock on the door of every Arab country for help.”
