Lebanon Announces Formation Of New Government
Lebanon formed a new government under the leadership of Prime Minister Hasan Diab, he was nominated on 19 December. The presidential announcement was made after Hezbollah and his allies, who are now tasked with tackling the country's worst Decades economic crisis. Hassan Diab, a 60-year-old professor at the University of Beirut, is now a 20-member cabinet chief, mostly supported by specialist political parties. The test of the new Lebanese government will be its action and its accountability for the demands of the Lebanese people to implement reforms and fight against corruption. Only strong government is capable to committed and taken real concrete reforms actions, that is required to restore investor confidence and unlock international aid for Lebanon. In the last three months, unified, non-denominational and largely peaceful protests have led to the Lebanese people. Have shown the partisan interests of their political leaders and their aspirations to work in the national interest. We urge the government, military and security services to participate in peaceful demonstrations to guarantee the safety of civilians. Violence and inciting actions have no place in civil discourse.
