ALBAWABA - The George Kordahi hastag is trending on twitter and the rest of the social media.

The resignation of Kordahi as Minister of Information of Lebanon comes after much pressure internally as well as externally 

He made the news that he will be resigning his ministerial portfolio on Wednesday which he submitted to President Michael Aoun and Prime Minister Nijeeb Miqati. 

The new Acting Minister of Information will be appointed soon but people are still fathoming the resignation

Many including Prime Minister Najib Miqati hope Kordahi's resignation will restore relations between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia and the Gulf which had been cut once the video of Kordahi was shown last month shown with him openly expressing his views on Yemen.

The Minister has already submitted his resignation request to both President Michel Aoun and Premier Miqati.
