Lebanese Parliament Term Ends, New Gov’t to Be Formed
The mandate of the Lebanese parliament ends at midnight Monday. Meanwhile the government gears for its final meeting at Baabda Presidential Palace to tackle 59 items before it turns into a caretaker government on Tuesday.
The cabinet's meeting will be chaired by Lebanese President Michel Aoun to discuss several issues including the problematic electricity file.
Two days later, the new parliament will convene on Wednesday under the most senior MP, Michel Murr, to re-elect its speaker.
In the coming hours, contacts and meetings intensify before the parliamentary blocs launch nominations.
As soon as the parliamentary entitlement ends, the attention will be drawn towards the naming of a new premier and the formation of the new government.
On Thursday, Aoun is set to begin the binding parliamentary consultations for naming a premier in preparation for the formation of the next government.
