Lebanon has agreed a new government of national unity, ending nearly nine months of political wrangling. “We must turn the page and start working,” said Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri, who is now in his third term. The 30-member cabinet has four women, including the interior minister – a first for Lebanon. The most pressing challenge for the cabinet is to revive Lebanon’s economic fortunes and cut the national debt, which stands at about 150 percent of GDP.
