This weekend was marked by relative calm in political rhetoric and an increase in the tone of religious leaders on the issue of government formation, a government that has been overdue since August 10 and in the absence of tangible progress. The Patriarch Maronite thus conditioned the forensic audit of the Banque du Liban to the establishment of a new government. He thus took the President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, who launched "the battle for the forensic audit" last week. Some sources recall that the leader of the Maronite church has already defended on several occasions the governor of the Bank of Lebanon, Riad Salamé, recalling the immunity he enjoys in his post. The Patriarch would like Riad Salamé not to be excluded from the race for the presidency of the republic which will take place in a few years. The Patriarch Maronite also attacked the head of state, accused of fabricating "standards of the national pact, constitutional interpretations and imaginary powers", accusing them of having offered Lebanon hostage to the regional conflict. According to him, the absence of a government prevents the arrival of international aid "to save the population from financial collapse", while the international community conditions its aid to the quantification of the losses of the financial sector and in particular of the Banque du Liban via a forensic audit. For his part also, the mufti of the republic, Sheikh Abdul Latif Daryan estimated that "there are malicious hands who are secretly working to hinder the efforts of Arab brothers hailed and to thwart the French initiative", on the eve of month of Ramadan.
