Former premier Saad Hariri on Sunday held phone talks with President Michel Aoun and Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and agreed with them on holding separate meetings on Monday.

Al-Jadeed TV said Hariri will meet Aoun at 11:00 am.

The two meetings kick off Hariri’s series of consultations with the various political blocs ahead of Thursday’s binding parliamentary consultations to pick a new PM.

Hariri’s new drive comes after he announced in a TV interview on Thursday that he is willing to head the new government, reversing a previous stance.
