Mikati “back” with timid result… Will formationm path be paved?

For the fourth time, Najib Mikati is assigned to head the government, thus becoming the caretaker prime minister and the designated president at the same time.
Assigning the formation of the new government raises the level of challenges for Mikati, amid expectations that not much will change in its ranks, although non-binding parliamentary consultations will start early next week.
Mnasa expects that the process of forming a government will become more complicated due to the looming conflict over who will succeed President Michel Aoun, when his term ends on October 31.
So, it is clear that Lebanon is sitting on the edge of the unknown in a confused rhythm of political “foloklor dance” on the ryhtm of recycles “notes” that portend the worst, amid international concern about dire repercussions.
