BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Forces Party, Samir Geagea, tweeted on Friday that Prime Minister Sa’ad Hariri should dissolve the government and form a new one.

“The best that Prime Minister Saad Hariri can offer in these difficult times is to present the resignation of this government in preparation for the formation of another government that is completely different and completely new and can lead to the process of an economic recovery that is required in the country,” Geagea tweeted.

“I know the extent of the efforts exerted by Prime Minister Hariri to remedy the situation, but the ministerial majority, unfortunately, is elsewhere,” he said in comment posted on the Lebanese Forces’ official website.

Minus a small tiff earlier this year, Geagea, whose party is also a member of the March 14th political bloc, has been a key ally to the Lebanese Prime Minister since the Syrian Army’s withdrawal from Lebanon in 2005.

Since the start of the week, wide-scale protests have occurred across Lebanon as people demonstrate against political corruption.
