A report from London-based al-Hayat said that Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt and members of his political bloc would name former prime minister and current Lebanese caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri as their nominee to head the new Lebanese government.

The report added that Jumblatt told Hariri Friday he intended to name him as prime minister as long as he remains committed to the Saudi-Syrian agreement to resolve the crisis surrounding the Special Tribunal for Lebanon report expected to be released within days.
