President Michel Suleiman is expected to hold talks on Saturday morning at the Baabda palace with Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati on the results of his consultations with parliamentary blocs and MPs.
Suleiman’s visitors reported him as saying that the issues of dispute between the Lebanese, especially those linked to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, should be resolved through dialogue.
They told the daily al-Mustaqbal in remarks published on Saturday: “The president is seeking with the prime minister-designate to quickly form a new government to finalize a number of social issues.”
“The president stressed that there is no room for malice in Miqati’s new government as it would harm the interests of all Lebanese, not just one side, and therefore, vengeance from one political camp against the other is out of the question for him and the premier,” they continued.
Meanwhile, caretaker Education Minister Hasan Mneimneh told the daily An Nahar Saturday that Suleiman had previously held talks with Miqati on the formation of the new government and he encourages the participation of all political camps, including the March 14 forces.
