Lebanese newspapers Friday morning 15.07.2016 in Beirut
and Lebanese newspapers Friday morning 15.07.2016 in Beirut several topics, most notably the Cabinet meeting yesterday, especially in terms of the postponement of research in cellular awarding file ..
«Moody»: a negative outlook on the Lebanese banking system
«Cellular conflict»: who controls .. in preparation for privatization?
Ambasserottan newspaper wrote this address Ambassador says " the Council of Ministers yesterday regained the bustle of the awarding of the cellular sector file, which affected the Prime Minister Tammam Salam keep time since last December, on the way over the removal of the oil's three years ago!
Despite the fact that the seven - month period were those involving an explicit violation of the law, it is to extend the Communications Minister Boutros Harb to knobby current operators «alpha» and «Touch» months Vshahra, in concert with the peace (strictly to stop a vital facility), and a return to the cabinet, but that peace had hoped that the time is insufficient to calm the souls in preparation for a quiet discussion of the file.
The confusion that took place yesterday at the Council of Ministers between the two ministers Boutros Harb and Bassil, showed that bet peace was misplaced and that the time to buy is not the best way to address the outstanding issues.
Thus, what the Council reached the fourth item on the agenda, even Ola sound, against the backdrop of delays in tender awarding of cellular operators.
Differences in the interpretation of the agreement , which was concluded in the Council of Ministers on April 29, 2015 on the outline for the book of tender conditions are still the same, after the first tender failed.
If the disagreement title on the experience of developed companies to the wish of the Minister of Communications sector management by global companies are able to transfer to the era of evolution versus the desire of Basil give equal right for all to enter the tender, without impossible conditions, the background of the political dispute regarding the fate of the company «Orascom» Operator's «alpha» specifically: Boutros Harb wants to drop the most prominent influence Center Aounists in the telecommunications sector and «free Movement» wants to install it !
Can you solve the issue and how?
So far, no one has the answer, albeit a war show their confidence that the auction will take place before the end of the year, explaining that it can be made within two months. It is therefore requested permission from the government to be able to extension of the two companies , according to the current need, within a period of nine months at the latest, as it is assumed during the tender procedure and ending the handover procedures between the companies.
In contrast, for fear of a repeat of the failed tender experience (only two companies did not file), which sees the war they caused the failure of politics, the war's «ambassador» revealed his intention in the event of the tender approved, doing a personal effort to make it a success through a tour of the various states.
The first steps taken by the war is proposing modified conditions book, allowing the expansion of fan companies that are entitled to participate in the auction, where he called to allow the participation of communities Companies (funded and technical, for example) or branches of large corporations (was this proposal rejected by the ministry in the tender Previous).
While some smell a deal that allows entry of non - eligible companies to the sector behind the guise of big companies, he stressed the war's «ambassador» that the proposal requires that technical company is to be responsible in front of the Lebanese government on the implementation of the contract, provided that the parent company shall be accountable to the state does not branch, ensuring non - receipt of the sector at a later time by non - eligible companies.
Minister Mohammad Fneish has told «ambassador» that it is in principle no objection to this proposal, stressing at the same time that the dispute is still standing on years of experience which is supposed to be owned by the companies applying for the tender (insist war to be advanced company has operated a network of 10 million subscribers during the last five years, while the other team is the experience requirement is achieved through the company 's advanced network includes 10 million operating line in any of those years).
Fneish also rejected his allies accuse of seeking to block the tender in light of the current political situation, distinguishing between the tender for the management of the sector and between «attempt Alzamna options in the telecommunications sector». This concern is due concern expressed by Fneish in the previous tender time, about « the mentality that the conditions book poses and show that the political team of the Minister of War acted on the basis that the tender is the prelude to the privatization of the sector, and that the companies that will take over management of the sector after the auction, will be the front - runner in the owning sector in the event of a decision of privatization. »
It raised the cabinet meeting yesterday, without any agreement and it was decided that the subject is the first item on the agenda of the meeting following the return of the Lebanese delegation to the Arab summit later this month agenda.
«Moody» .. classification Lebanon negative
On the other hand, the day after the Council of Ministers of Finance meeting, which was broken by alarming numbers but not disastrous, released yesterday, an international report sheds light on the fragility of the Lebanese financial situation, where the agency «Moody» bank credit services expected continued weakness in the operating environment for the Lebanese banks. And he indicated that it will lead to slow credit expansion and increase pressure on asset quality at banks, as well as exposure to these high and increasing banks to sovereign debt.
He held «Moody» Report title «foreseeing the banking system - Lebanon: the weak operating environment .. and exposure to sovereign debt lead to a negative outlook».
Said assistant vice president in the «Moody» Alexius Filipides, «We consider that the high and increasing on Lebanese sovereign debt exposure would be a credit risk a major Lebanese banks in the forecast horizon, will the Lebanese banks also continue to face significant headwinds amid a difficult operating environment».
The report pointed out that Lebanese banks exposure to sovereign debt carries risks for their creditworthiness and connects classified classifies Lebanon (B2 Negative). According to estimates «Moody», will go down the fiscal deficit to 8 percent of GDP average in the years 2016 and 2017, and the government will rely primarily on local banks to cover the funding gap.
Moreover, the rating agency 's real GDP growth rate of 1.7 percent in the year 2016 forecast (in 2015 it was 1.3 percent), which is much lower than the average between the years 2007 to 2010 (9 percent), while the instability regional political conflict and will continue to impact on private investment, and consumer confidence, and the construction and trade sector. This in turn will raise the pressure on the asset quality of banks, with an estimate of «Moody» that loan losses will remain high between 1 and 1.5 percent of total loans, while non - performing loans increased to more than 5 percent of total loans, as she recorded with the end of the year in 2015 an increase of 4 percent.
Despite these pressures, «Moody» notes that capital levels will remain stable on a large scale, with the support of the implementation of the Convention «Basel 3» with retained earnings and limited growth of the asset, as will remain vulnerable to the downside risk.
The rating agency expects to keep the total capital assets remained stable at 9 per cent during the year 2016, a modest level given the difficult operating environment and exposure to the sovereign is very high for banks.
In addition, the «Moody» expected to remain stable profitability, with a net income of intangible assets between 0.9 and 1.1 percent in the year 2016 (amounted to 1.0 percent during the years 2014 and 2015) with the support of foreign operations and margins stable widely useful.
Moreover, solid liquidity buffers and funding based on the depositors will continue to support the stability of the regime in Lebanon. Deposits will continue to grow but at a slower rate, reflecting weak domestic economic growth, given the flows (financial) less than the Gulf Cooperation Council ( GCC ) . Lebanese banks and low reliance on market financing, while deposits funded more than 80 percent of total banking system assets.
"Bile" rounds ignore the economic caveats
Berri: No constituent conference and Taif with all its clauses
Newspaper Alnharotnaolt day internal affairs she wrote , "while the Council of Ministers engaged in one of the debates usual political bile rounds , which often cause disable its decisions or deported, the two institutions two international dailies in a manner correlative classifications negative economic and financial situation in Lebanon would be Asulta more caveats on the repercussions of the political reality that stands in the first place and behind this decline.
The classification was issued yesterday for the agency "Fitch" credit rating , which downgraded Lebanon to b- with a stable outlook as reported by "Reuters". She said , "Fitch" The war in Syria a severe impact on the economic performance and outlook for Lebanon as well as the political risks are exacerbated by the Syrian war and the weakness of the public finances , anemic economic performance. And it predicted that the real GDP growth for Lebanon remains below two percent in 2016.
The second classification issued by the agency "Moody 's " was retained negative outlook to the Agency about the next phase of the Lebanese banking sector as a result of the continued exposure of banks to sovereign debt, raising again the fear of the possibility to witness the rating sector in the coming period , further reduction. And it predicted that the gross domestic Lebanese grow by 1.7 percent in 2016 with expectations of rising continuously for bank deposits, but at a slower pace as a result of weakness of the Lebanese economic sectors.
Council of Ministers
In the meantime, ministerial sources " An- Nahar" reported that regular Cabinet meeting yesterday was "productive" to the extent circumstances permit , thanks to the prime minister management Tammam Salam her and who was able to keep the discussion within the "red lines" with the sharp undecided happened in the file cell. It was decided to move the discussion of the fourth item on the renewal of my contract cell to the end of the meeting where it was agreed to allocate an extraordinary session to him on 27 July of this , which facilitated the adoption of another item at the request of a peace president considering that the implementation of the court order , which approved the request of the Ministry of Communications to open additional provision of a $ 24 billion LP in the budget of the ministry thereto for the year 2016, to implement the decisions of the State Consultative Council concerning the transfer of technicians and Ministry of Communications of the salaries of the technical tables attached to a series of ranks and salaries. Although he won an argument between the concerned minister Boutros Harb on the one hand and the two ministers Gebran Bassil, Mohammed Fneish hand Okhry.fbadma objected last two on the ministry 's request to extend two decades , demanding to return to conduct a tender with the book new conditions replies war on them that he acted the way in which the disposal of his predecessors (ministers "FPM") then the intervention of President asking to postpone the search to 27 of this month.
And discussions involving the political implications, an interception and Finance Minister Ali Hassan Khalil to delay the application of the decree is still stuck six months ago due to prevent the ministers "FPM" Basil Elias Bossab for his signature which is the appointment of the Director of Drainage interest in the Ministry of Finance, and asked Khalil exceeded objection single component in the government as the former agreement, but ended the debate the intervention of the president of peace and prevented the evolution of the debate that goes back to peace is to send the decree to be published in the official Gazette.
Furthermore, deferred - bit reduced check and collect fines on companies and banks to obtain additional information requests after the finance minister asked withdrawn from the agenda. But ministerial sources pointed out that the intensification of the allocation of extraordinary sessions for each of the thorny issues , along with the repeated deportations per controversial item is reflected in the fundamental aspects of it extends the deliberate disruption to the government , similar to what is happening in the House of Representatives, which feared him that there be a stressful equation meant to circulate disruption "fairly negative"!
Berri and Taif
Amid this atmosphere, it emerged as the positions expressed by Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri , in a speech yesterday at a conference emigrant economy, which has gained significant implications in terms allay fears on the Taif agreement as stressed adherence to the Taif Accord and the importance of full stipulations applied "before talking about any amendment in it . " , talking about the "hold constituent conference" opponent. And as noted the importance of relations with the Gulf countries in particular Saudi Arabia, he added: "We are days they gave us did not deny, but still a lot for Lebanon under the protection of the Arabs."
Bonn: First settlement
Furthermore, the French Ambassador Emmanuel Bonn spoke to " the word of the people" of the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation for his country move regarding the Lebanese crisis program , he said that "France does not have the ability to negotiate on behalf of the Lebanese parties but nonetheless talk with everyone and trying to find the right conditions to be Lebanon in a good position and probably the best on the Lebanese dialogue together to find solutions. "
He said that "Lebanon does not need to (Iranian Foreign Minister) Mr. Mohammad Javad Zarif , or (Crown Saudi Crown Prince) Mohammed bin Salman or even (French Foreign Minister) Jean - Marc Aareault to elect him president, but needs a Lebanese consensus , which produces government good product, parliament and even the time I did not hear any Saudi permit or a French or an American refuses Gen. (Michel) Aoun and the French approach from the beginning was to get a settlement that allows the election of a president for all Lebanese and form a government that represents national unity. "
He concluded that " We must start preparing the content of the settlement before moving to the names of the candidates. Politics is not just personal ambitions , but also a comprehensive agreement that would allow everyone to reassure and provide guarantees to everyone. This argument is necessary because the election of the President of the Republic the need for Lebanon, but the most important is to have a government that works and parliament works. "
Displaced Syrians international funding for «Lebanon alternative homeland»!
Newspaper Alabarkme dealt with news of local affairs , and she wrote , "can not ignore the displaced Syrians in Lebanon file, although the government and some political forces are striving to that, even though the danger increases every day from internal blasting agents, under international trend dismissive of any procedures governing this displacement or to open a serious discussion about this file.
Shed massacre bottom and suicide attacks , which targeted light on the Syrian camp for displaced people at the bottom, who complained of the people of the town since it was settled by the Syrians displaced region projects and began establishing their camp and expanded it to become their number ranges between 20 and 30 thousand, without that official bodies have scientifically census The precise number of real or internal structure.
What happened after the massacre that the political polarization taking the case to another place, to reject the self - Security at the bottom as the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian Eid al - Fitr sermon said. And ignoring the danger of the camp and everyone stretch its population, and the militants «hidden» in the vast border area, what constitutes a continuing threat to the people of the region, to become a political speech undecided whether the target bottom or is it just cross the bridge. Instead of focusing on the development of «Syrian camp», lost re - file in the Traffic files that Taatlhy by the Government.
But the official blindness did not cancel the suicide attacks and the fall of the five martyrs and a number of wounded and fear for the fate of the bottom and top of Baalbek, has spread fear in a number of areas in Mount Lebanon specifically, she started a campaign of preventive measures where there are displaced people and Syrian workers ' rallies. It is the fear justified by the weakness of official bodies and the relevant ministries and the government in dealing with the repercussions of what happened in the bottom and put the displaced, amid a split position of the participants in the government on two levels: first determination of the future to keep the file away from the seriousness of treatment, and the unwillingness of Amal and Hezbollah in any confrontation relating to immigrants than Sunni - Shiite tension of at this stage. And between the two parties stand FPM trying lighting on file in the international community.
Actions taken by some municipalities in the right of Syrian workers that, and what happened in Amchit and its repercussions, and rumors about the action taken is also governor of the Bekaa Bashir Khadr to prevent roaming the Syrians during Baalbek, invitations counter to boycott the festival because of this decision that denied Khadr later reissued, to prove that came embers of the displaced under the ashes, and that the government continues to put its head in the sand, and avoid dealing in the case has become a national priority ahead of other files before the dialogue or the cabinet table, and assume a radical review of all what happened and try to take future measures after Lebanon 's inability to preventive measures . This is not talk absurd, because the information given in recent days , pour not in the interests install displaced Syrians in Lebanon, but also to involve the community in the Lebanese internal conflict over the issue. According to informed sources, confirming international atmosphere to raise a number of Western capitals and financial contributions for Lebanon, not only to keep the displaced Syrians has, but also to provide a semi - permanent residency requirements. This coincides with what is happening in Turkey 's quest to give citizenship to the displaced compared to many of the Turkish International files. And enhance the air after the suicide bombings in a number of European and international capitals, and now aid provided to Lebanon in the ceremonies suggest that they are to support stability in it, while it 's custom for the displaced Syrians through various channels, relief, financial, educational, nutritional, and other titles. And criticizing the authorities responsible do some ministries, including education (affiliated to the Free Patriotic Movement , which launched a campaign to put displaced people), for example, photographed the importance of Lebanon 's cooperation official «educational» with the international community to address the educational situation of displaced, and funding programs for education and to provide schools for them, in while this part is an essential part of a major merger, as happened in some European countries that were quick to receive displaced by the exacerbation of the risk of displacement of thousands of them.
And the seriousness of what is happening, according to the information, is that Lebanon has started to get used to the presidential vacancy, and talk about some societies find the experience of co - existence, and began to get used to «Syrian presence» as new. To promote this atmosphere, international donors and international associations began, according to information, campaign and extensive funding to mobilize local organizations, sometimes under the rights cover human and sometimes under the civil society cover (previously worked in different local files) for the media campaign and the political, social and broad defense of the rights of displaced Syrians , portraying the suffering in Lebanon and the need for Lebanon 's commitment to international conventions to protect and secure the social, health and educational requirements, noting that Lebanese staff members of organizations internationalism and work to pay attention to the displaced people, speak openly in their councils for their unwillingness to be Syrians Bekaa camps leaves , for example, because they «make up the balance» required with Hezbollah in the region.
The interesting local media displaced Syrians highlights and refusing to deal with them racist humanitarian grounds purely appear in contrast to promote the prevention of any practical measures and security with respect to whom the campaign, including not hurt in the only goal of protecting their human rights, despite the fact that security and military atmosphere that was rumored after the massacre bottom and operations raids obtained but also targeted similar gatherings and specific areas in Mount Lebanon and Beirut, it gave sufficient justification Procedures need to take on the Syrian rallies.
According to sources, the politicians and ministers concerned with the file of the displaced are talking privately about you can not do any work in the light of international and UN insistence on keeping them in Lebanon, regardless of their conversion demographic bloc stressful on Lebanese society economically, socially and security. Nor can political forces to agree on a comprehensive and integrated plan to address the international community, not to ask for more financial aid, but also to develop a plan to end the Syrian displacement, rather than wait until the end of the Syrian crisis that could drag on for years. This requires a government plan with the capitals of the UN resolution, and through the Security Council and international organizations, and even with the Syrian government, also poses some involved, which can not be optimistic at all agree upon, when failing to official bodies responsible for final tuning to put displaced people in the towns and their communities, and Acclaim Lebanon's official and rejoices to visit any Western official carrying a bag of money to Lebanon, though the aim was to secure the «alternative homeland» for displaced people, recalling the features of scenarios in 1969, 1973 and 1975.
