Aoun hopes new gov't will be formed next week
BEIRUT: President Michel Aoun expressed his hope Friday that a new government would be formed next week.
“I hope that the government will see the light next week to enhance internal and external confidence,” Aoun tweeted.
He added that he hoped that the new government would help tackle the economic crisis and return to the implementation of the Mckinsey plan, referring to the five-year plan to diversify and modernize the productive sectors of Lebanon’s economy.
“Work is underway to form the government of new faces of experts to deal with the current situation and respond to the attitudes and aspirations of the Lebanese,” Aoun tweeted.
Since his designation by President Michel Aoun in December to form the next government after gaining the support of a parliamentary majority, Prime Minsiter-designate Hassan Diab has pledged to form a small government made up of “independent specialists” who do not belong to political parties, a major demand of the protesters.
