Anniversary of the Beirut Port Explosion… National mourning and challenges afflicting Lebanon

T + T – normal size

On the eve of the second anniversary of the “explosion of the age” in Beirut port, which falls on Thursday, during which Lebanon is witnessing a comprehensive national day of mourning, amid a complete closure in all official and private sectors and public movement, provided that the commemoration activities culminate in 3 huge marches, starting from 3 points in downtown Beirut to the emigrant statue, where the central celebration of the anniversary will be held. The presidential and political data intersected when the various parties concerned with the file of forming the government expressed their common conviction that the assignment and authorship page was closed, waiting for the new presidential era, especially in light of what appeared to be a deliberate presidential marginalization of the government file. , in the tripartite meeting of Baabda between the three presidents, Michel Aoun, Nabih Berri and Najib Mikati, last Monday, which opposition sources saw as an attempt to maintain the existing political balances in the current caretaker government, and an unwillingness to form any new government that restructures the distribution of portfolios. or amended according to the results of the last parliamentary elections.

And based on the presidential “Baabda retreat”, which was devoid of any approach to the file of government formation, neither from near nor from afar, the same sources opposing the “statement” indicated that each party concerned with authorship should keep the government situation as it is, while the matter is the same for a president Minister-designate Najib Mikati, who, according to these sources, “remains” in the Grand Serail, whether the government is formed or not, with what this means is that the vacuum has become a foregone conclusion, thus leaving the management of people’s affairs and the state to the caretaker government. The President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, is still insisting that he not sign a government decree that is not what he envisions and wants, while the designated president will not form any government that is not in the image of his current government. As for the end of Aoun’s term on October 31, without the election of a new president, the signature of the president who has left Baabda Palace is no longer needed, while Mikati loses the status of the designated president in order to continue as the caretaker prime minister. Accordingly, and according to the assertion of observer circles of the “statement”, the president-designate is continuing to drain the last three months in the state, until it collapsed.

“link a dispute”

On the eve of the start of the countdown to the constitutional deadline for the election of a new President of the Republic, starting from the 31st of this month, there is a consensus that those concerned with authorship have adapted to the obstructive reality of this file, and therefore it no longer constitutes an urgent priority for them, as evidenced by their adherence to what the President of the Republic has called “with me”. And the “convictions of the designated president”, and not to renege on them on their part. That is because Mikati did not abandon his government draft that he handed over to the President of the Republic on June 29, except for saying that he is ready to discuss it, without canceling it or replacing it with a different draft. As for the President of the Republic, he still adheres to his constitutional partnership with Mikati in forming the government, which goes beyond his signature until he also has a final word on what the designated president proposes. Note that the President of the Republic, in his speech at the Army Day celebration, indirectly mourned the possibility of forming a government, by expressing his hope that “the fate of the presidential election will not be the same as the fate of forming the new government, which has not yet had the necessary elements and criteria to be a government.” effective and capable of carrying out its responsibilities now and in the future.”

Accordingly, there is a consensus that the process of forming the new government has begun to turn into a “conflict link” between the first and third presidencies, while it is not difficult to anticipate with him that it will, in turn, turn into a time-wasting and draining path, proving what everyone fears that the caretaker government is Alone is “remaining and stable”, amid growing and steadily growing exclusion from the possibility of forming a new government. Thus, this file will apparently remain “sleeping” in the drawers, not until further notice, but until another era, especially since the constitutional deadline for electing a new president of the republic begins on the first of next September, with what this means is that the demand to form a government with the start of this The time limit will become “necessary what is not necessary”.
