As the living conditions in Lebanon are witnessing an unprecedented deterioration, the political scene is suffering from several hardships preventing any solution.
In this regard, the judicial and political circumstances preventing the council ministers from convening have not been addressed by the competent authorities. The politicization of the investigation into Beirut blast being conducted by Judge Tarek Al-Bitar has even complicated the political situation in the country.
Al-Bitar had issued arrest warrants against officials as well as military figures on an illogical basis, pushing the defendants and observers to cast doubts on his probe.
On August 4, 2020, a massive blast rocked Beirut Port blast, killing around 195 citizens and injuring over 6000 of others. The explosion also caused much destruction in the capital and its suburbs.
Meanwhile, the Lebanese pound has reached a record low with an exchange rate of 25,800 against the US dollar. This financial and monetary exacerbation has left catastrophic economic effects.
