BEIRUT (Reuters) – Lebanon’s Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday a new government was the only way out for the country out of its financial crisis but suggested a cabinet of specialists only would not last.
Nasrallah also cast doubt on how a new cabinet would implement reforms that would be needed for an International Monetary Fund deal.
“If the prime minister-designate agrees with the president on Monday a government of specialists we will agree,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech.
But he warned that a cabinet formed with no politicians would fail.
