Mutual “vetoes” between Aoun and Mikati

In an exclusive information to “Sawt Beirut International’, the government formation process is back to square one due to the dispute over three main portfolios:

The Interior Ministry: The President-designate proposes retired Major General Ibrahim Basbous, while the President of the Republic rejects him.

Justice portfolio: The president proposes Judge Joel Fawaz, but the president-designate rejects her because she is affiliated with the former minister, Salim Jreissati

Energy portfolio: The President-designate adheres to Carol Ayat, who is rejected by the President of the Republic.
