Lebanon - Q&A from the press briefing (28 Sept. 2022)


Do you have any comment on the Lebanese Parliament’s failure to elect a new Lebanese President?

The presidential election is a crucial step toward ending the crisis in Lebanon. It is important for this election to be held by the deadline determined by the Constitution, i.e., before October 31, in order to avoid a power vacuum. Lebanese leaders must rise to the occasion, which calls for unity, and implement the reforms that are needed to end the crisis.
