So if I'm reading this correctly, he wants to start a "new" government, but still be in control over it? Sounds to me like he's either stalling for time, or he's trying to placate the opposition without losing any power, or both. Maybe he's beginning to realize that the rebels are serious about removing him and he's getting tired of the fight. Or maybe he's seeing talk of capitulation in his own ranks.
I'd sure love to be a fly on the wall . . .
