Lebanon’s ex-premier Hariri re-emerges as top pick for PM

Lebanon’s Saad al-Hariri re-emerged as a candidate for PM on Sunday after businessman Samir Khatib withdrew his candidacy. President Michel Aoun has now postponed until Dec. 16 consultations with lawmakers that had been expected to result in Khatib being named PM on Monday. Hariri quit as PM on Oct. 29, prompted by mass protests against corruption and an economic crisis.
