Lebanon has formed a new government, amid months of massive anti-government demonstrations against corruption and economic inequality that forced former Prime Minister Saad Hariri to resign in October. On Tuesday night, new Prime Minister Hassan Diab announced a Cabinet of 20 ministers he said were independent. But experts and protesters say the ministers represent Lebanon’s existing parties and entrenched political elites. This is protester Rabih al-Zein.
Rabih al-Zein: “This establishment and these leaders do not represent us. This government doesn’t reflect us. We want a government made of our own. We want the money that was stolen. We want healthcare, power supply and early parliamentary elections.”
