GOVERNMENT CRISIS IN LEBANON
The Lebanese government resigned after the explosion in Beirut Port on August 4, 2020.
President of France Emmanuel Macron visited Lebanon on August 6 and September 1, 2020 and made an attempt to form a government composed of technocrats.
However, due to the disagreements experienced by the sectarian political forces in the ministry of sharing, no progress has been made in the efforts to form a government for months, and no result has been obtained from the initiative of France.
In December 2020, Hariri submitted a list of 18 ministry technocrats to President Aoun. Avn, on the other hand, objected to Hariri’s acting alone, especially in the determination of Christian ministers, without an agreement with the Presidency.
Parliament Speaker Berri later made an attempt to increase the cabinet list of technocrats from 18 to 24.
Saad al-Hariri, who was tasked with forming the new government in Lebanon on October 22, announced that he was leaving his post recently because he could not come to an agreement with President Michel Aoun.
Seeing the political forces and administrators as the cause of the economic crisis in the country, the people demand the establishment of a downsized government composed of technocrats, without the sectarian political parties that have shared power for many years.
