Lebanon’s parliament speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that the government still stands after the prime minister’s shock resignation, according to sources who met with him.
Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s resignation in a weekend broadcast from Saudi Arabia “in this form” will not change the government’s capacities, the sources cited Berri as saying.
Hariri announced his resignation on Saturday, revealing a plot to assassinate him, and accused Iran and Hezbollah of working to undermine Lebanon.
He said in a televised resignation speech that the atmosphere in Lebanon was similar to the atmosphere before the assassination of his father, Rafiq al-Hariri.
