Lebanon to hold parliamentary consultation to form new government | Xinhua

BEIRUT, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) — Lebanese President Michel Sleiman will launch mandatory consultations next Monday to form a new government after the resignation of ministers affiliated with Shiite armed group Hezbollah brought down Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s cabinet.

“The consultations will start at noon (10:00 GMT) Monday,” Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri told reporters after meeting the president.

Hezbollah has fought a deadly war with its arch foe Israel in 2006, which claimed the lives of 1,200 Lebanese civilians and 160 Israelis.
