China News Service, October 22. According to Agence France-Presse, on the 22nd local time, Lebanese President Aoun appointed former Prime Minister Hariri as the country's new prime minister and will form a new cabinet to help Lebanon out of crisis.
According to reports, since the resignation of former Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri in 2019, Lebanon has appointed two new prime ministers.
Despite the increasing pressure from the international community and other parties, the formation of the new Lebanese government has not been able to reach a consensus due to the fact that various parties in the country have been unable to complete it.
A violent explosion occurred in the port area of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, on August 4, 2020, causing thousands of injuries.
After the explosion, large-scale demonstrations in Beirut continued to protest against the explosion and corruption of the authorities.
The then Prime Minister of Lebanon Hassan Diab announced the collective resignation of the government on August 10.
On August 31, Lebanese President Aoun appointed Mustafa Adib, the country’s ambassador to Germany, as the new Lebanese Prime Minister.
On September 26, Adib announced that he had given up forming a new cabinet because he could not reach a consensus with all parties in the country.
