Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri announced the formation of a new government, breaking a nine-month deadlock that followed the country’s May 2018 parliamentary elections. He made the statement at a press briefing at Baabda Presidential Palace in Beirut on Thursday.
The new government will be headed by Hariri.
During the press briefing, Hariri said that the new government is “a reflection of Lebanon’s image in 2019.”
The new government is reportedly set to include three ministries affiliated with the Shiite Hezbollah group.
