What reforms could we achieve with the presence of Aoun, Berri, and Mikati in office?

If we wanted to list the most notable happenings today, we could do it as follows: An historic record fall of the Lebanese pound, as the green currency’s ceiling surpassed the LBP 28,000 ceiling for the first time, registering between LBP 28,250 – 28,300 per dollar. Armed robbery in broad daylight at Byblos Bank in Zalka, right under the nose of the nation! An escalation in the land transport sector, which claimed that the country will be paralyzed indefinitely next Thursday.

The inquiry into the Burj al-Shamali camp explosion reveals nothing new, demonstrating that Hamas’ weapon has become above discussion and accountability, with the help and cover of the party of arms: Hezbollah. What do the top officials, notably the heads of the executive and legislative authorities, do in light of this entire “party” practices? nothing at all. They are obsessed with their minor challenges, as if they were rebuilding a nation and establishing a state. They are even uninterested in the IMF proposal.

Simultaneously, the poor are suffering, and no authority is paying attention to the deplorable living circumstances. At all levels, there is no knowledge of the stage’s accuracy and danger. On the other hand, the President of the Republic is focused with his war with the Speaker of Parliament, which will effectively terminate Michel Aoun’s period.

Meanwhile, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri is busy with his legal struggle. He is ready to throw the country in hell for the sake of Ali Hassan Khalil and Ghazi Zeaiter. The prime minister, for his part, makes no effort to summon a government session. Najib Mikati is unable to provoke a breach or accomplish any success. Will this failing trio, who has surrendered by all accounts, confront the catastrophe and be rescued?
