Mikati is waiting for Aoun at the plane’s door to save the government, so will he succeed?

Whoever thought that the government formation by consensus between political parties would be a solution to get out of the crisis, it has become obvious to him that he was mistaken.

The government has been frozen for more than a month, even though Prime Minister Najib Mikati is trying to save his government, before the situation gets more complicated.

Mikati has met Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri in Ain El Tineh yesterday and proposed a new initiative to resume government sessions. The initiative is based on the Parliament’s request to form a parliamentary committee to search for a solution for the trial of the presidents, ministers and representatives accused in the Beirut Port blast case, in exchange for the Cabinet’s call to hold a session upon the return of the President of the Republic from Qatar.

Will the initiative succeed in returning ministers to the government table?

Mikati insists that the Cabinet should convene, while arranging his conditions to run in the parliamentary elections.

Attention is directed towards Baabda at the end of this week, as well as the popular movements in the street, and the soaring exchange rate of the dollar.
