Mikati says to 'carry on with national and constitutional action'


Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati on Tuesday lamented that Lebanon is celebrating its 79th Independence Day amid “a presidential vacuum and legitimate concerns over the present and the future.”

“Our unity is capable of pulling our country out of what is suffering, with the help of our brothers and friends in the world,” Mikati added.

And calling on MPs to “cooperate to elect a new president,” the caretaker PM pledged that he will “carry on with the national and constitutional action that is required from us.”
