Berri Warns of Further Delay in Cabinet Formation

Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri on Friday stressed the need to speed up the formation of a new government, warning that the ongoing procrastination jeopardizes "what's left" of Lebanon's economy.

"We won't tolerate further waste of time and delay in establishing the executive authority which is mainly represented by the government," he said during the 41st foundation anniversary of the Islamic Scouts.

Berri called for containing the situation as soon as possible, saying that leaving the country without a government makes the country vulnerable and undermines the state's authority.

“We want drastic solutions to the electricity sector crisis; ones that do are not based on rented barges,” Berri stated.
