Several major Lebanese politicians have agreed on nominating Mohammad Safadi, a former finance minister, as the prime minister of a new government, according to an Al Arabiya source.

The agreement took place following a meeting on Friday between outgoing Prime Minister Saad Hariri, Lebanon's leading Sunni politician, and senior representatives of Amal and Hezbollah.

Lebanese broadcaster MTV said the government would be a mixture of politicians and technocrats.
