Ex-PM Saad Hariri on Wednesday said he “regrets” the settlement that made Michel Aoun president, adding that he “never expected him to have such a personality.”
“But I made the settlement to halt the collapse and strife,” Hariri added, in an interview with SkyNews Arabia.
He also revealed that he stepped down as PM-designate this month because “things got personal” with Aoun.
Separately, Hariri said that “Lebanon’s interest lies in PM-designate (Najib) Miqati’s success in forming a government.”
“We strongly support him,” the ex-PM added.
He also suggested that “the revolution we are seeing in Lebanon will consolidate its presence through the results of the upcoming parliamentary elections.”
