Elections in Lebanon
By Micah Halpern
The Lebanese parliament failed to elect a new head of state. Their objective was to replace President Michel Aoun whose term of office ends on Oct. 31.
Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri told the people of Lebanon that, when a consensus emerges on a candidate, he will call for another Parliamentary session.
Unless consensus emerges on a candidate, the presidency looks set to fall vacant when Aoun's term ends. The timing couldn’t be worse as Lebanon is in the throes of a deep financial crisis.
This is bad news for Lebanon. They need a stable and honest government.
