Prime Minister Najib Miqati announced Monday evening that he will continue his “missions and efforts,” after media reports suggested that he might resign.
The premier is “continuing his missions and efforts to resolve the issue of resuming Cabinet sessions, and any later stance that he might take will only be relates to his national and personal convictions and his evaluation of the course of things,” his office said.
As for the PM’s stormy meeting earlier in the day with Speaker Nabih Berri, the office said Miqati reiterated his rejection of “any form of interference in the work of the judiciary.”
He also stressed the need that the solutions proposed for the issue of the Higher Council for Trial of Presidents and Ministers be based solely on the constitution’s articles, the office added.
“PM Miqati informed this stance to President Michel Aoun and Speaker Nabih Berri, and it is not an ambiguous stance at all,” the office said.
