On Saturday, the Grand Mufti of the Lebanese Republic, Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian, congratulated Prime Minister Najib Mikati on the formation of the government.

This came in a statement published by the National News Agency (government).

Derian wished Mikati success in achieving economic, social, living and development advancement in the country, activating the work of official institutions to carry out their duties to serve citizens, and implementing reforms in various fields.

On Friday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati signed a decree to form the new government, consisting of 24 ministers, in the presence of Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.

The Lebanese Cabinet set, in a statement, next Monday, the date for the first ministerial session of the new government headed by Mikati.

On July 26, the country’s President, Michel Aoun, assigned Mikati to form the government, after Hariri and Mustafa Adib apologized for not completing the task, due to differences between the political forces.

The Mikati government will succeed the caretaker government, which resigned 6 days after a catastrophic explosion occurred in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020.

For more than a year, political differences prevented the formation of a government that would put an end to the economic collapse, and to succeed the current caretaker government headed by Hassan Diab.
