The New Lebanese Government Wins Confidence Vote
Najib Mikati's government wins the parliament's vote of confidence with a majority of 85 votes.
Al Mayadeen's correspondent reported today evening, Monday, that the Lebanese government headed by Najib Mikati won the vote of confidence by the parliament with a majority of 85 to 15 votes.
The ministerial session scheduled to discuss the policy statement and give a vote of confidence lasted more than 8 hours. The delay was due to a power outage resulting from fuel shortage at the meeting center.
Prime Minister Najib Mikati stated that his government will remain committed to the Armistice Agreement with the Israeli occupation, while also dedicated to the liberation of the occupied Lebanese territories. He also expressed his adherence to Lebanon's right to defend its waters and resources through various legitimate means.
It is noteworthy to mention that Mikati's government was formed after 13 months of political vacuum following the resignation of Hassan Diab's government.
The new government will have to face several challenges such as stopping the country's economic collapse, which resulted in the deterioration of living conditions, loss of medical supplies, and significant oil shortages.
