BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri called for a session to be held next week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, to vote on the new government and its policy statement.

The cabinet on Thursday approved a plan to tackle the country’s severe economic and financial crisis, which it must now present to parliament to secure a vote of confidence.
