Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri apologised for establishing a new government in Lebanon on Thursday at the presidential palace, nine months after being appointed, in a move that could exacerbate the country’s economic situation.
In a press conference after meeting President Michel Aoun, Hariri said that the president sought significant changes to the government formula provided by the Prime Minister.
He said: “We will not be able to get along. As a result, I apologised for creating the government.”
“May God help the country,” he added.
The duty of building a government is now expected to fall to Parliament, which will delegate the task to someone else.
Lebanon has been suffering from an economic and political crises that took it’s toll on the Lebanese people.
