Mikati criticizes Arslan’s handling of his resignation

Share:

Prime Minister Najib Mikati questioned criticized the behavior of Lebanese Democratic Party leader MP Talal Arslan and the way he resigned from the cabinet shortly following its formation earlier in the day.

Mikati told New TV that Arslan should have submitted a letter, which could then be discussed with the president.

“I wonder about the behavior of Arslan ,” Mikati said, in a reference to Arslan’s speech earlier in the day slamming Mikati.

Arslan announced his resignation during a press conference and accused PM Nagib Mikati of lying and causing a rift between him , MP Walid Jumblatt and MP Michel Aoun.

He said “I cannot sit next to a man like Mikati in the same cabinet ”

He said “Mikati lied to all the Lebanese and caused rifts between many people , he thinks he is the smartest and this is something we cannot accept”. He added :” I have lost all confidence in Mikati and his abilities to seriously run the country”.

Arslan was always insisting on being allocated a ministerial portfolio , but instead he was assigned a ministry of state . He accused Mikati of discriminating against the Druze community.

Ministries of state are usually used as a filler to complete the lineup.

    Who is he any way. I have never heard of him doing anything good for Lebanon. Did he help in reconstruction? Health, what are his policies and plans for the ordinary man in the street? Whether he comes or goes or stops or holidays in France or meets up with journalists or makes speeches or meets up with other politicians or says what he says or not say it what difference will this make to any one who is trying to make a living and hopes for better living conditions in Lebanon? Is he a lecturer, medical doctor, lawyer, educator, do good person or what? The World if full of these people and they are 2 a penny. What a waste of space in newspapers to write about him or read about him.
