Hariri announces resignation: Make Lebanon’s interest and safety prevail over everything else

The President of the Council of Ministers Saad Hariri announced the submission of the resignation of the government to President Michel Aoun and to the Lebanese people in all regions, in response to the will of the many Lebanese who took to the streets demanding change, and in compliance with the need to provide a safety net that protects the country in this historic moment.

Prime Minister Hariri's remarks came in his address to the Lebanese this afternoon from the Center House.

He said: For thirteen days, the Lebanese people has been waiting for a political solution that stops the deterioration. Throughout this period, I tried to find a way out, through which we can listen to the voice of the people and protect the country from the security and socio-economic risks. Today, I reached a dead end and it has become necessary to make a big shock to face the crisis. I am going to Baabda Palace to submit the resignation of the government to President Michel Aoun and to the Lebanese people in all regions, in response to the will of the many Lebanese who took to the streets demanding change, and in compliance with the need to provide a safety net that protects the country in this historic moment.

I call on all Lebanese to make Lebanon's interest and safety, the protection of civil peace and the prevention of economic deterioration prevail over everything else.

To all the partners in political life I say: Our responsibility today is to protect Lebanon and prevent any fire from reaching it. Our responsibility is to improve the economy, and there is a serious opportunity that should not be lost.

I place my resignation at the disposal of the president and all the Lebanese. Positions come and go but what is important is the dignity and safety of the country.

I too say: No one is greater than his country, May God protect Lebanon.
