Lebanese politicians will launch talks on forming a new government on Monday, the parliament speaker said, after the resignation of Hezbollah ministers and their allies toppled Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri’s government. “The consultations will start on Monday at noon,” speaker Nabih Berri told reporters on Thursday after meeting President Michel Suleiman.
