Member of the "Development and Liberation" Parliamentary Bloc, MP Kassem Hashem, hoped Sunday that the new cabinet would see the light very soon, so as to "begin the stage of serious work in approaching all pending dossiers and developing a rescue plan for the country."

Hashem indicated that the status quo cannot persist, stressing that "it has become urgent to address the economic and social challenges and to rebuild confidence between the Lebanese and their State."

He also highlighted Lebanon's need for a government of reconciliation and national consensus, in light of the surrounding challenges and pressing circumstances witnessed in the region.

Hashem's words came during a meeting with a delegation from the "Social Welfare Center" in the Southern town of al-Arqoub, who briefed him on their initiatives and services provided to the children of the region.
