BEIRUT - Lebanese President Michel Aoun asked Sunni politician Saad al-Hariri on Thursday to form a new government, the presidency said in a statement, after he secured the support of a majority of MPs.

Hariri, who was formerly prime minister from 2009 to 2011, was expected to be named to the position again as part of a political deal that resulted in Aoun being elected head of state by parliament on Monday.
