Lebanese gov't formation "urgent, necessary": official
(MENAFN) Speaker Nabih Berri emphasized that setting up the Cabinet sooner than Eid al-Fitr falls in the country's favor in light of the "massive challenges and crises facing Lebanon and the economic situation," al-Joumhouria daily reported on Monday.
"The sooner we form the Cabinet, the better for the country. Nothing prevents this government from being born during the intervening period until Eid al-Fitr. The Lebanese will then have two occasions to celebrate," said the Speaker.
Media reports have earlier said the line-up of the new government is likely to be announced on the eve of the Eid al-Fitr holiday or shortly afterwards.
"Expediting the formation is necessary and urgent. It is a duty for everyone to face the enormous challenges facing the country and the growing crises in it, especially the economic situation which cannot be delayed, procrastinated or slowed. It requires exceptional approaches and responsible solutions," stressed the Speaker.
