A new Lebanese government, headed by Prime Minister Saad Hariri, was announced Sunday night.
Fouad Fleifel, secretary general of the council of ministers, read the decrees of the formation after the meeting that was held at the Presidential Palace between Aoun and Hariri in the presence of Speaker Nabih Berri.
Hariri, who was asked to form the first cabinet of the tenure1
of President Michel Aoun, faced many political obstacles before apparently2
reaching the consensus3
that led to the formation of the cabinet.
