ALBAWABA – A new government in Lebanon could be hitched up within the next 48 hours.
Barring last-minute snags, a new government could be formed in Lebanon in the next 48 hours as a result of unprecedented US and French pressure on rival factions to facilitate the formation, a political source said Monday. #Lebanon [Kataeb] pic.twitter.com/SMQIRVudF3— Eli Dror (@edrormba) September 6, 2021

#Lebanon designate Mikati to meet President Aoun within the coming hour - their 13th meeting since Mikati appointed a month ago - will they agree on cabinet lineup?

Premier-designate Najeeb Mikati has met Lebanese president 13 times in the last month – when he was appointed to form a cabinet.
Lebanon has been without a government for well over a year. Mikati is the third Prime Minister-designate to try to form a cabinet.
