Lebanese newspapers: There is no sooner formation of the government .. and there are fears that the vacuum will continue for a long time

The Lebanese newspapers published this morning confirmed that all the data and indications indicate that the new government will not be formed in the foreseeable future, given the political scene, which has entered a severe phase of tension, complexity and ambiguity, and amid serious fears of the continuation of the government vacuum until the election dates next year.

The newspapers (Al-Nahar, Al-Gomhoria, Nida Al-Watan, Al-Akhbar, Al-Liwa and Al-Sharq) agreed that the Prime Minister-designate, Saad Hariri, emerged victorious in the parliament session that was held two days ago to discuss President Michel Aoun's message to Parliament about the government crisis, and that (Hariri) obtained parliamentary confirmation by installing him as president In charge of forming the new government in the face of the presidential team that includes Aoun and the Free Patriotic Movement headed by Representative Gebran Bassil, who suffered heavy moral loss.

Newspapers reported that matters in the government file "are as stagnant as they are", as it does not seem until now that the possibility of forming a government is available and possible, rather the complications increased in a way that would open the door to the continuation of the government vacuum for a long period, especially since the information indicates that the President Aoun is not about to compromise, retreat, and meet Hariri midway, and the latter will not back down either, but rather rejects any review of the government formation that he presented to the President of the Republic last December and insists that the latter refer it to the House of Representatives to give it confidence or withhold it from it. Which is rejected by Aoun altogether.

Newspapers expressed fear that the government vacuum will extend to the date of holding parliamentary elections next May or until the end of President Michel Aoun's term in October of next year, in light of the worsening economic, financial, monetary and living crises that Lebanon is witnessing and accelerated collapses affecting state institutions and basic services.

She indicated that Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri is continuing his tireless efforts and insists on not closing the "door of positives" in order to keep hope among the Lebanese in a very dangerous stage, financially and economically, with the possibility of forming a new government soon that extricates the country from its suffocating crises, by proposing initiatives aimed at creating Common spaces between the political parties involved in government authorship, especially President Michel Aoun and his successor, the Free Patriotic Movement, with the Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri.
