New hope has emerged on Tuesday after an “urgent” invitation from President Michel Aoun aimed at exploring means to break the monthslong government formation deadlock, al-Joumhouria daily reported on Tuesday.
A “group” of ideas, “that could be the magic wand” to pull the government out of the crisis before the year’s end, were put forward, added the newspaper.
An initiative to resolve the Sunni obstacle after the failure of Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil’s proposals was discussed.
On Monday, President Michel Aoun invited for an “urgent” meeting and held separate talks in Baabda with Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri.
Talks have focused on the means to resolve the delayed government formation.
After his discussions with Aoun, Hariri did not give specific details but told reporters “there are possible solutions” for the crisis, without elaborating.
Aoun reportedly intends to hold further political consultations with other figures over the coming days.
