BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s designated Prime Minister Hassan Diab is expected to go to the Baabda presidential palace “in preparation for announcing a new government”, al-Manar TV said on Tuesday.

Hezbollah and its political allies have agreed on a new government of 20 ministers, including economist Ghazi Wazni as finance minister, two senior political sources told Reuters earlier.
