Najib Mikati (born November 24 1955) is a former Prime Minister of Lebanon. He was appointed to this post by President Emile Lahoud on 15 April 2005, to succeed Omar Karami, who gave up after seven weeks of frustrated efforts to form a consensus government and resigned. He held office for three months, handing over on 19 July to Fouad Siniora. Like all Prime Ministers since 1943 (except for two who have served in a caretaker capacity), he is a Sunni Muslim. Mikati graduated from the American University of Beirut in 1980 with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. He went on to complete a PhD in Business Studies at Harvard University in the United States in 1989. He subsequently founded the Mikati Group, which has since grown into a telecommunications empire with significant investments throughout the Arab world. After being appointed to the Cabinet as Minister of Public Works and Transport on 4 December 1998, he was elected to the National Assembly from his hometown of Tripoli in 2000, outpolling Omar Karami, who was elected from the same multimember constituency. As a parliamentarian, he retained his cabinet position and developed a reputation as a moderately pro- Syrian politician with a good relationship with Syrian President Bashar Assad. He turned down an opportunity to become Prime Minister in 2000, insisting that Rafik Hariri was the choice of the Lebanese people. In 2004, he came out against the ad-hoc amending of the Constitution to extend six-year term of the pro-Syrian President Lahoud for another three years. This indicated that despite his own pro-Syrian inclinations, he was not a Syrian puppet - a factor that counted in his favour when a new Prime Minister had to be appointed in the wake of Karami's resignation on 13 April 2005. In the negotiations to form a government, Mikati emerged as a consensus candidate. Despite his closeness to Syria, his willingness to compromise and his promise to dismiss the chiefs of the security forces, whom many Lebanese suspected of involvement in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri on 14 February 2005, won the support of the anti-Syrian opposition, against the strongly pro-Syrian Minister of Defence, Abdul-Rahim Murad. "We will be the symbol of moderation and national unity," Mikati declared after being sworn in at the Presidential palace in Baabda. ...more on Wikipedia about "Najib Mikati"

Rafik Bahaa Edine Hariri — Arabic: رفيق الحريری (short name) or رفيق بهاء الدين الحريري (long name) — ( November 1 1944 – February 14 2005), was a Lebanese self-made billionaire and business tycoon, and was twice Prime Minister of Lebanon from 1992 to 1998 and again from 2000 to 2004. He last resigned from office on 20 October 2004. Hariri was assassinated on 14 February 2005 when explosives equivalent to around 1000 kg of TNT were detonated as his motorcade drove past the St George Hotel in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. The Syrian government has borne the brunt of Lebanese and international outrage at the murder, due to its extensive military and intelligence influence in Lebanon at the time of the attack, as well as the public rift between Hariri and Damascus just before his last resignation. A United Nations report implicated Syrian officials and members of the Lebanese security services. The UN has voted unanimously to demand full Syrian cooperation with UN investigators in the matter. ** ...more on Wikipedia about "Rafik Hariri"
