Report: Hariri to Make Series of Stances during Iftars in BIELإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Former Premier Saad Hariri is expected to return to Beirut from France next week to attend Iftar banquets, sources close to the Mustaqbal movement leader told An Nahar daily Monday.
Hariri “will return to Lebanon in the first days of the month of Ramadan early August to be present in a series of Iftars held at the BIEL exhibition center rather than Qoreitem where Iftars were held in previous years,” the sources said.
The ex-prime minister “will make successive stances at these Iftars,” they told An Nahar.
Hariri’s return comes as part of the March 14-led opposition’s campaign against Premier Najib Miqati’s government.
But al-Mustaqbal bloc MP Ahmed Fatfat told Voice of Lebanon (100.5) that he has no information about Hariri’s return to Beirut during the holy month of Ramadan.
The sources said that the large-scale meeting that March 14 held at the Bristol hotel, Hariri’s interview with MTV and a conference that it would hold on Tuesday again at the Bristol are all part of the opposition’s approach in toppling the cabinet.
Meetings between the coalition’s top leaders will resume upon former Premier Fouad Saniora’s return from his vacation in Turkey at the end of this week, they added.
