Samir Skaf: Many obstacles face Mikati

The return of Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati’s government “as is” is almost the only one that can see the light of writing! This government will be tasked with facilitating the election of a president of the republic, which is the government of lost time, or the government of managing the vacuum, if it happens! And most likely it will not happen, if everyone learns from the previous void! Also, putting forward any new “political” and “consensual” combination, “the tyranny of passion” needs time that is not available! And if it succeeds in breaching it, it will ignite the street and is considered provocative, at a time when many do not want to strain the internal situation to facilitate the election of a president.

Also, the proposal to replace any name in the current government may open the controversy wide, unless it is agreed to change one or two names from the same political party and the same portfolio! The “ambitious” governments are postponed to the “New Testament”! Otherwise, formation is impossible!

Following up on the government file, we were joined by journalist and political activist Samir Skaf.
