Reports: Hariri Agrees with Hizbullah, FPM, AMAL on Naming Mohammed Safadi as PM


Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri has agreed with Hizbullah, the AMAL Movement and the Free Patriotic Movement on nominating ex-finance minister and businessman Mohammed Safadi for the premiership, several Lebanese TV networks reported late on Thursday.

The reports emerged after a Center House meeting between Hariri and the political aides of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and Speaker Nabih Berri.

Center House sources meanwhile told the Hariri-affiliated Mustaqbal Web news portal that the discussions tackled consensus on Safadi's nomination but not the shape of the new government or al-Mustaqbal Movement's participation in it.

Social media activists meanwhile erupted in anger over the news as a protest got underway outside Safadi's house in Tripoli.

Really, how insulting!!!!

The people are asking to elect their own.. not for the corrupts to do it and insult with old names with repeat habits that will be "yes men"..

Enough of the... the army and general security, police etc officers on the ground need to know start rejecting orders and turn their back on their seniors and stand with the people... enough of this merry-go-round crap

Saad Hariri had a chance to stand for Lebanon, for freedom and independence, for the legacy of his family.... and he failed miserably!

Agree completely. Having resigned ostensibly in step with people's demands, there is no need for him to agree to such a choice especially as he could have counted on the Lebanese to back him up.

This is a no go choice and the people know it.

First Aoum and his condescending remarks, then this! How stupid do they believe us to be...

They don’t get it... they just don’t get it!

Can they be this stupid to bring up a 75 years old figure of the past, a figure which is controversial, a figure that already had a portfolio in a corrupted government !?

Another corrupt so-called businessman who made his money through shady deals and corruption


The Guardian reported that Safadi involved in Al Yamama arms deal through an anonymous offshore company, Poseidon.[26] The company was allegedly used to transfer money to Safadi, who was working for Prince Turki bin Nasser, Saudi royal and an air force officer at that time.[26]
He broke with his March 14 allies and sided with the Hezbollah-led March 8 coalition along with Mikati.[17]
