Lebanon today has a new government after a 13-month period marked by endless political consultations that have exacerbated the country’s unprecedented economic crisis in two years.

President Michel Aoun and new Prime Minister Najib Mikati “signed the decree for the formation of the new government in the presence of Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri”, the presidency announced via its Twitter account.

In an emotionally charged speech after signing a decree with President Michel Aoun on the formation of the new government, Mikati said the situation in the country was “difficult” and added that there were no reserves left for subsidies and that everyone should ” tighten the belt “.
