It is expected that the Qatari envoy’s tour will also include the head of the Marada Movement, Suleiman Franjieh, and the former head of the Socialist Party, Walid Jumblatt, in preparation for the official mission that will be carried out later by the Qatari Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Mohammed Al-Khulaifi, in search of a third name for the presidency that would be acceptable to the majority of political forces. However, it was also reported among the leaks that the Amal and Hezbollah duo informed “Abu Fahd” of their adherence, along with their allies, to Franjieh’s nomination.

Political sources revealed a new approach adopted by the countries of the five-party meeting in their last meeting on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meetings, which includes maintaining the mission of the French presidential envoy Jean-Yves Le Drian assigned to resolve the presidential election crisis, supported by a simultaneous move undertaken by the Qatari envoy charged with making the necessary communications.

Informed political sources told Al-Liwaa that starting this week, the scene regarding the new Qatari effort regarding the presidential file is taking shape, and they indicated that if Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri wanted to suspend his call for dialogue, he would be frank with everyone about it, declaring that the positions of the head of the Free Patriotic Movement, MP Gebran Bassil suggests opening the door to debates without knowing whether he wants to restore the role of the movement in confronting the process of his exclusion or if he is doing so for populist goals.

These sources expressed their belief that Bassil’s return to talk about the opposition does not necessarily mean that he is joining the current opposition, but rather with the intention of another kind of opposition. They pointed out that the month of September is drawing to a close and there is anticipation for any surprise in the next month, especially presidentially, or will the stagnation overwhelm the picture. current politics.
