Lebanon discloses new government headed by Saad Hariri
Lebanon has named a new 30-member government of national unity to be led by Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the BBC wrote.
Mr Hariri said the cabinet’s priority would be to “preserve stability” amid turbulence in the region, it added.
It includes most political groups, including the militant Hezbollah, but the Christian Phalangist party rejected the portfolio it was offered, according to the BBC.
It indicated that among the new portfolios are an anti-corruption post and a minister for women’s affairs.
In a statement, Mr Hariri, 46, said the government would act to “preserve our country from the negative consequences of the Syrian crisis”, the BBC also wrote.
