On Friday Lebanon’s President and Prime minister announced a new cabinet after thirteen months of political deadlock and a spiraling economic downturn. Lebanon has been without a fully empowered government since the catastrophic August 4, 2020 explosion that rocked the port of Beirut and forced the resignation of then Prime Minister Hassan Diab’s government. In the meantime, an economic meltdown unfolding since 2019 has been made worse by political gridlock. Paul Gadalla joins The Greek Current to break down these latest developments from Lebanon, and what they mean for the country and the region.

Paul Gadalla is a former Beirut-based journalist and Middle East Analyst who focuses on the Eastern Mediterranean and religious minorities. His work has been published in a number of outlets including Kathimerini, MENASource - an Atlantic Council blog, The National Interest, and Newsweek.
