In a televised speech on the occasion of the 43rd anniversary of Shiite spiritual leader Imam Musa Sadr’s disappearance during a trip to Libya, Berri pointed to the need to nominate a cabinet this week to immediately implement anti-corruption reforms.
Also that Lebanese people wait to get fuel at a gas station across the country due to fuel shortages that deepen the worst economic crisis in decades, he stressed.
Sadr, who founded the Amal movement now headed by Berri, and his two companions, Mohammed Yaqoub and Abbas Badreddin, disappeared on August 31, 1978, during an official visit to Libya on an invitation by late President Muammar Gaddafi.
The comments by the head of the Lebanese legislators called for an understanding by President Michel Aoun and Prime Minister-designate Najib Mikati, who are responsible for nominating the next government lineup.
Lebanon has lacked an effective Government since August 10, 2020, as the total debacle begins to approach with nearly 80 percent of the population below the poverty line (3.64 dollars a day, according to the World Bank), blackouts up to 22 hours a day, medicine and fuel shortages.
