UN warns about pressing socio-economic situation in Lebanon

Beirut, Mar 18 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Joanna Wronecka, warned about the pressing socio-economic situation in Lebanon in the context of the lengthening of the power void.

During her presentation before the UN Security Council, she stressed the need for Lebanon’s political leaders to achieve the necessary consensus and demonstrate flexibility in order to elect the new president of the Republic for the good of their people.

In the representative’s opinion, the fifth month of vacancy contributes to paralyze the state institutions, amidst worsening economic, security and humanitarian challenges.

The Special Coordinator warned about the rapid devaluation of the national currency and its domino effect on inflation, purchasing power and poverty rates, as well as the decrease in the provision of basic services, such as water, energy, education and health, all of which give way to extended strikes, particularly in the public sector.

She also regretted the slowness in adopting and implementing the necessary reforms in search of saving the Lebanese economy and putting the country on the path of recovery.

Wronecka stressed the urgency of speeding fair and thorough judicial processes in numerous unresolved cases in Lebanon, including the Beirut port explosion on August 4th, 2020.She also

She valued the unanimity within the Security Council on peace, security, and stability in Lebanon and the willingness of the international community to offer the necessary support.

The presentation of the Special Coordinator included topics from the report of the UN Secretary General, António Guterres, which covers the period from the 3rd of November 2022 to February the 20th of this year.
