President Michel Aoun has affirmed that the binding consultations to choose a Prime Minister will be held on Thursday, as scheduled.
He said in a press interview published on Tuesday that he will respect the MPs’ choice, as he expressed his worry about appointing a PM who is not supported by a great majority, who doesn’t have the consensus of his sect or lacks conformity to the National Pact.
“We want a PM who has experience and professionalism in dealing with the economic and financial crisis,” Aoun said.
He added that he supports a balanced political government of national unity.
As for the presidential election, Aoun assured that it will be held on time, promising that the forensic audit will be concluded during his term as President and will be announced from Baabda.
“I have never been weak, but I’m disgusted,” Aoun told the daily, when asked about his last months as President.
