Lebanon’s Hariri says no longer candidate for PM

Thursday, 19 December 2019 - 11:01

ISWNews Analysis Group: Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri announced no candidacy for the next prime ministerial post.

The nomination of Lebanon’s next prime minister has been postponed after major Christian parties said they would not support the candidacy of caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri, presenting a new impasse after weeks of political wrangling.

Since Hariri quit as premier in late October, the main parties have feuded over forming a new government, which Lebanon badly needs to tackle its worst economic crisis since the 1975-90 civil war.
