President Aoun highlighted dealing with the latest developments according to the national interests, adding that the demands submitted by the protesters to the presidency are being seriously tackled and will be addressed by the new government.

In this context, bandits blocked key highways in various Lebanese cities and towns, hampering the citizens’ daily life activity.
Prime Minister Saad Hariri submitted his government’s resignation to President Michel Aoun on October 29, leaving a political stalemate as parties started mulling a very complicated cabinet creation.
