Miqati Challenges Wahhab to Find Legal Way to End his Nomination

Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati’s circles have challenged Tawhid movement leader Wiam Wahhab to find legal methods to end the billionaire businessman’s nomination.

“Let them inform us when they find the legal way,” Miqati’s circles told several dailies in response to a question on the statement made by Wahhab on Monday.

The Tawhid chief said that he discussed with Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun legal ways to withdraw the nomination of Miqati for allegedly succumbing to U.S. pressure to delay the formation of the new government.

Although most involved parties have hinted that consultations aimed at forming the cabinet have reached a standstill, the circles refused to comment on the crisis.

There have been no contacts between Miqati and representatives from Hizbullah, the speaker’s Amal movement, and the FPM since last Wednesday’s meeting failed to end the government formation deadlock.
