Amr Moussa: Arab efforts in Lebanon could still succeed

Arab League efforts to resolve the political crisis in Lebanon could still yield results, but they need a push from the Arabs and regional powers, the head of the organization said Wednesday. Lebanon is embroiled in its worst political crisis since the end of tis 1975-90 civil war. Former President Emile Lahoud left office on Nov. 23 without a successor, and parliament has so far failed to elect a replacement amid bickering between the majority and the opposition factions. "The (Arab League) initiative still has a good chance to succeed," Amr Moussa told reporters at the end of a visit to Kuwait. "But the Arab and regional situation has to help us make more progress."
