BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri said on Monday the international community should look at results of Lebanon’s election in a “very positive way”.
Lebanon on Sunday held its first parliamentary elections since 2009. Lebanon is under pressure to prove to international donors and investors — who pledged more than $11 billion to Beirut last month — that it has a credible plan to reform its economy. Holding elections was seen as a key part of this.
