Lebanon’s PM-designate resigns after failing to form govt

Lebanon’s Prime Minister-Designate Mustapha Adib has stepped down, after efforts to create a new government fell through.

Adib announced his resignation after meeting with President Michel Aoun on Saturday, saying that he was not able to fulfill the “task of forming the government.” He had struggled for more than a month to create a non-partisan cabinet. Although he expressed support for political reforms and overhauls urged by French President Emmanuel Macron, Adib ran into innumerable hurdles, including a fierce debate over which party would control the Finance Ministry.
