Report: Arabs want president in Lebanon before mid-June


The influential Arab countries want to end Lebanon’s presidential vacuum before mid-June, a media report said on Friday.

“Efforts are now focused on returning Syria to the Arab League and preparing for Riyadh’s Arab Summit on May 19,” a diplomatic source told al-Liwaa newspaper.

Arab nations also see “a dire need to fill the presidential vacuum in Lebanon, within a timeframe not exceeding mid-June, in light of the size of the financial, banking, monetary and administrative junctures that require restructuring state institutions from the Presidency to a new government carrying a reformist agenda,” the source added.
