Lebanon speaker Berri: new govt could ‘see the light’ in days

BEIRUT: Lebanon’s influential Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that a new government could “see the light” within four to five days if talks keep going positively.

“The coming government could see the light within four or five days if the positive atmosphere continues on the current track,” Berri’s office quoted him as saying in a statement.

Saad al-Hariri was named premier for a fourth time last week, after political discord delayed agreement on a new cabinet that must tackle the country’s crippling financial crisis. - Reuters
