Aoun-Mikati’s contradictory relations reflect negatively on 2022

Lebanon is preparing to bid farewell to one of the most crisis years in the country’s history, leaving in it a series of countless crises. The positions of Aoun and Mikati remained, which contained differences and discrepancies in viewpoints and decisions in most of the files presented.

President Aoun stressed the necessity of sending an invitation to the Council of Ministers to attend, while Mikati rejected this step, stressing the necessity of the presence of all parties to reconvene the sessions.

As for inviting the President of the Republic to a dialogue table to discuss the defense strategy, the financial rescue plan, and decentralization, Mikati also did not like, who considered that the priority of dialogue focuses on neutrality, disassociation and internal understanding.

The dispute was not limited to these points, but also extended to the fate of the Governor of the Banque du Liban, Riad Salameh, as Aoun, who was renewed for him from outside the cabinet’s agenda, wants to dismiss him, while Mikati considered that it is not possible to change officers in the midst of wars.

The question today is, what will be the fate of the government if a situation of separation and silent tension develops between all its parties? What rescue can be expected from a political group that fights over the basics and does not agree on anything?!

Today, everyone is awaiting two looks for each of the head of the Aounist movement, Gibran Bassil, and the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, perhaps, even if falsely, bears the indicator of future relations in the new year.
