Lebanese President Michel Suleiman has once again begun consultations with legislators on their choice for a prime minister, after his previous pick was unable to form a government. The consultations come five days after prime minister-designate Saad Hariri abandoned efforts to form a government after the Hizbullah-led parliament minority rejected a Cabinet list he proposed. Hariri tried for more than 10 weeks to form a national unity government but decided to quit after what he described as "impossible conditions" by his rivals. However, with parliament majority blocs saying he is still their candidate, Hariri is expected to be renamed as prime minister-designate and have another chance to form a government.
