Parliament speaker’s proposal awakens hope in Lebanon

Beirut, May 27 (Prensa Latina) A proposal by Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri on Thursday focuses hopes of a possible formation of a government in Lebanon, amid an increasingly acute crisis among those in charge of the process.

Berri is getting ready to push his offer of a 24-ministry executive led by apolitical specialists and without veto power for one or another denominational group.

Berri’s proposal differs from the one recommended by designated Prime Minister Saad Hariri, of 18 ministries, and rejected by President Michel Aoun, for considering it unrealistic.

The parliament speaker aims to establish a compromise between Aoun and Hariri to solve that problem.

Previously, Berri warned that the worst is yet to come in case of continuing without a government and for that reason, he announced a total debacle or a social explosion of unforeseeable consequences.

Lebanon lacks a new government since August 10, 2020, following the resignation of the group led by acting Prime Minister Hassan Diab.
