General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim’s mediation has made progress and the fourteenth meeting between President Michel Aoun and PM-designate Najib Miqati might be their last, media reports said on Wednesday.
The meeting might produce a new government or could lead to Miqati’s resignation, al-Joumhouria newspaper reported.
Ibrahim had shuttled between Aoun and Miqati on Tuesday, holding two meetings with the President and a meeting with the PM-designate, carrying amendments and new suggestions, the daily said.
Speaker Nabih Berri’s political aide MP Ali Hassan Khalil meanwhile held a series of consultations over the past 48 hours with Miqati.
The proposals that Khalil carried “have been linked to what Berri has revealed about the need to form the government before the end of this week,” al-Joumhouria said.
