Mikati says wrote cabinet line-up himself at night, confirms reshuffle
PM-designate Najib Mikati took the decision to submit the government draft line-up to President Michel Aoun at night.
He told al-Jadeed that he wrote it himself by hand "after everyone refrained from participating and the choices became narrow."
"I have submitted to President Aoun a government reshuffle," Mikati said, clarifying that not all ministers will be changed.
He added that no contact has been made with the Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil except during the consultations.
