The Arab League expressed its willingness to help Lebanon solve its political stalemate, after weeks of mass protests and amid the country´s worst financial crisis in decades.
The office of Lebanon´s president, Michel Aoun, said he discussed the situation Thursday with the visiting Arab League assistant secretary-general, Hossam Zaki.
Lebanon´s prime minister, Saad Hariri, resigned late last month in response to nationwide protests that erupted on Oct. 17. They´re targeting the country´s entire political class.
Protesters have resorted to road closures and other tactics in an effort to pressure politicians into responding to their demands for a new government.
Aoun has not set a date for binding consultations with heads of parliamentary blocs to name a new premier.
Political factions remain deadlocked over the new Cabinet´s composition.
