Lebanon Faces New Political Turmoil

Lebanon is being plunged into deep political uncertainty with the collapse of the country’s coalition government.

Ministers from Shi’ite militant movement Hezbollah walked out after Prime Minister Saad al Hariri refused to stop co-operating with a UN investigation into the assassination of his father in 2005.

The investigation is widely expected to finger senior members of the movement as being behind the massive truck bomb that killed 22 others.
Hezbollah says the investigation is an Israeli-American plot. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the movement is engaged in a “transparent attempt to subvert justice”.

What happens now?

First, Lebanon’s President Michel Suleiman must try to cobble together an emergency coalition government. He has asked Saad al Hariri to stay on as caretaker PM.
It could take a long time before Lebanon has a new administration.
