Bassil announces nominating Saad Hariri to premiership

NNA – Caretaker Foreign Affairs Minister, Gibran Bassil, said, “After nominating head of Future Movement Saad Hariri to premiership by the Future Bloc, we agree on such nomination which is a normal stance. All our votes will be in favor of Hariri and we will remain by his side across all the difficulties he faces. We will accept the one who accepts us and reject the one who rejects.”

Bassil’s stance came Tuesday in the context of the regular weekly meeting of the Bloc of Reform and Change in Rabieh.

“We want a national unity government in accordance with clear standards based on proper representation,” said Bassil, who added that General Michel Aoun is a president for Lebanon and all Lebanese.
