Aoun is planning to stay… Will he do it?

The Covenant series… Total darkness, humiliating queues, fuel, bread… No medicine or hospitalization… Universities and schools reeling… The bombing of the Port of Beirut, unemployment and immigration… Passports with appointments… And many more clips and scenes Horror and drama… And today, with its penultimate episodes… Will the president decide to start a new season? Or is it the end?

As for the president personally, he has sent his clear message in the past few hours, to the effect that “the vacuum at the level of the executive authority is incomplete in terms of specifications and does not have the confidence of the House of Representatives. It does not seem natural to fill a vacuum at the level of the Presidency of the Republic,” which means that the timely caretaker government will not receive the ruling if the presidential vacuum falls, so is it a message to urge formation or to pave the way for him to remain in Baabda?

On the other hand, the escalation of attitudes and the correction of the head of the Free Patriotic Movement against the designated prime minister, what is meant by it? And will President Mikati submit to these conditions?

So far, nothing is clear and known… Not whether a government will be formed or not… Not even if there is an extension of the current president or the election of a new president… In light of this uncertainty, all we can do is wait to truly realize “what will happen in the end”.
