Miqati’s Circles to Aoun: Constitution Can’t Be Turned into a Game

Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati’s circles have snapped back at Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun saying the man tasked with forming the new cabinet is acting in accordance with the constitution.

While the circles said that Miqati refuses to bicker with any side over the government impasse, they stressed that the premier-designate “reads the constitution which is clear and has standards that should not be turned into a (political) game.”

The sources made the remarks to several Beirut newspapers.

On Tuesday, Aoun accused both President Michel Suleiman and Miqati of collaboration to keep the country in a power vacuum. He also said that the cabinet formation efforts were back to square one.

“Moodiness is not a characteristic of a man of state,” the FPM chief added.
