Saad Hariri named Lebanon's new prime minister
04 November 2016 Current Affairs GK: Lebanon’s newly elected president charged former Prime Minister Saad Hariri to form a new government after he secured a majority in parliament.

Hariri was endorsed by 110 members of the 127-seat parliament, with only the Shiite Hezbollah movement, the Syrian Social National Party and the Lebanese Baath party  all supporters of Syria’s government  declining to back him as prime minister.

Hariri returns to the post of prime minister five years after his last cabinet collapsed when his longtime rival Hezbollah and its allies pulled their ministers from a unity government that had taken months to form.

He is the son of former prime minister Rafik Hariri, who was assassinated in a massive seaside bombing in 2005 in Beirut.
