Lebanese Prime Minister-designate Sa'ad Hariri on Thursday said he is abandoning efforts to form a new government after the Hizbullah-led parliament minority rejected his list for a national unity cabinet. Hariri's move takes Lebanon into more political uncertainty. Lebanese President Michel Suleiman will have to start consultations from scratch with lawmakers on naming a new premier. Hariri's step-down comes two days after Hizbullah and its allies rejected his proposed team for the 30-member cabinet. Hariri, who has unsuccessfully tried to form a government since the June parliament elections, named his own picks for the cabinet posts.
