After three weeks of wrangling, Parliamentarians have finally agreed who should govern Lebanon.
The 24 member cabinet is made of politicians and non-political specialists, and includes one member of Hizbollah for the first time, but Michel Aoun is not taking part.
Rejectionist Aoun refused to join the cabinet after he was denied the Justice Ministry. Hizbollah take their seat as Energy Minister – a weak but symbolic post.
The controversial decision over who to send to the Foreign Ministry – traditionally held by Hizbollah-ally Amal – was settled by giving the post to an independent Shia. He was supported by both Hizbollah and Amal. Hizbollah had been lobbying for the post, which is seen as important in the face of international pressure on their militia in the south.
Elias Murr, the victim of an attempted assasination last week, returns to the government.
