Miqati Affirms Support for Hariri, Says ‘I Don’t Envy Him’
Former PM Najib Miqati threw support behind PM-designate Saad Hariri who has been seeking for more than six months to line-up a government amid several obstacles hampering his mission, al-Joumhouria daily reported on Thursday.
Miqati said it is inappropriate to deal with the PM from the logic of “accountability,” pointing out that he has to form the government in agreement with the President who has a role of making sure that only “competent members” join the government, Miqati said in remarks to the newspaper.
“We do not envy Hariri for the position he is in, but we stand by his side and support him in achieving his mission. We must all work to make the country rise,” he said.
