The problem is that he was essentially placed in PM's chair not by the will of the people, but by a coup that took place under threat of violence by an armed militia. It's the second time, in a very short period of time, that this armed militia has asserted its will over the Lebanese government by holding it hostage under the threat of violence. Interesting to note, that those voting for Mikati, aside from Hezbollah's usual allies, have all essentially said it was a matter of avoiding conflict. So it really doesn't matter if Mikati is a good choice or not, or whether his goals will be set on the benefit of Lebanon...because if he doesn't bow to the will of Hezbollah, he'll be replaced by Hezbollah. The precedent has been set, and Lebanon is essentially controlled by an armed militia...it's that simple.
