BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt said that the best solution out of mass protests triggered by an economic crisis is to speed up a government reshuffle, as proposed by President Michel Aoun, he said in a tweet on Thursday.

Jumblatt said the reshuffle should be followed by new parliamentary elections.
