Lebanon in ‘intensive care’ and economy ‘very dangerous’, says parliament speaker



 

BEIRUT (Reuters) – Lebanon’s Parliament Speaker said on Wednesday the country was in “intensive care” and the economic situation was “very dangerous”, according to a lawmaker who regularly speaks for Nabih Berri.

Prime Minister-designate Saad al-Hariri has not yet managed to form a national unity government four months since the country held parliamentary elections, a delay which has raised fears for Lebanon’s highly-indebted economy.
