President Michel Aoun has announced that he will not accept the resignation as long as the prime minister has not returned in Lebanon. Hariri would stay in Saudi Arabia. He announced Saturday his job because his life would be at risk. In addition, he accused Hizbollah and his ally Iran.
Just after Hariri announced his resignation, Lebanon's accusations and speculations went over and over again. While the Lebanese army denied that there were threats to Hariri, a Saudi minister said a plot was discovered.
Saad Hariri is the son of the 2005 Rafaq Hariri premier Rafiq, a Sunni businessman who had good ties with Saudi Arabia. His appointment in 2016 as head of a cabinet with, among others, Hezbollah was part of a political agreement that seemed to end the years of political impasse. With his resignation, a new crisis seems to be the doorstep.
