NNA - "Lebanese Forces" leader, Samir Geagea, announced that his Party's "Strong Republic" bloc named Prime Minister Saad Hariri to head the next government.


"We nominated Saad Hariri for Premiership," Geagea told reporters in the wake of the binding PM designation consultations at the Baaba palace this afternoon.


Geagea hoped that the coming government will be new since, as he said, "Lebanon is in need of a rescue plan."


The LF leader underlined the dire need for a serious work in the new government.


He also pointed out that his talks with President Aoun during the binding PM designation consultations dwelt on certain developments.
