Political dispute delays Lebanese government formation

Lebanon is witnessing a severe political crisis that is delaying the formation of the new government, which is supposed to be formed by Saad al-Hariri.

The main obstacle facing the formation of the Lebanese government is the political dispute between the Lebanese Forces Party and Christian Free Patriotic Movement over the ministerial posts.

Hariri’s office announced on Wednesday that he will meet with Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun to discuss the government formation process.

Hariri made a phone call this morning to Aoun, in which he agreed on a visit to the presidential palace on Thursday to follow up consultations on the formation of the government.
