Miqati Meets Aoun, Senses 'Acceptance' of Line-Up Suggestions
Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati on Wednesday held talks with President Michel Aoun at the presidential palace in Baabda.
“I submitted to President Aoun my suggestions regarding the cabinet line-up and I sensed acceptance from his side,” Miqati said after the meeting.
“I took his remarks into consideration and I hope we will see a government soon,” the PM-designate added.
Miqati had also met with Aoun on Tuesday to brief him on the outcome of his nonbinding consultations with the parliamentary blocs regarding the new government.
He had pledged earlier on Tuesday to hold continuous meetings with the president in order to speed up the formation of the new government.
