Lebanon: Saad Hariri sets 72-hour deadline for leaders to resolve crises

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has delivered political parties and its leaders 72 hours to agree on resolutions to the country’s economic crisis, among rising calls for the government to leave.
“I’m giving our partners in government a very short deadline – 72 hours that can give us a solution that can convince us, the people on the streets and our international partners,” he stated, calling the country’s economic despair as “unprecedented” and “challenging”.

He added that his attempts to pass reformations have been hindered by others in government whom he did not name.

Nationwide protests paralyzed Lebanon on Friday as thousands of demonstrators blocked major roads in a second day of rallies against the government’s handling of a severe economic crisis and the country’s political class they perceive as being corrupt.
