Mikati vows to form govt. despite 'many obstacles, conditions'
Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati on Tuesday pledged to “carry on with the new government formation process” despite the “many obstacles” that he said are being put in his way.
Mikati also lamented that there are “conditions and suggestions aimed at creating a de facto situation during the most dangerous phase of our history.”
“We are determined to continue working in line with the obligations of the constitution and the national interest, and no one will be allowed to sabotage or obstruct the constitutional course,” Mikati added.
And hoping parliament will be able to elect a new president for the republic within the constitutional timeframe, the premier warned that “the challenges require the complete presence, cooperation and integration of the constitutional institutions.”
Mikati also decried that the 1989 Taef Accord is facing “non-innocent campaigns.”
