BEIRUT (Reuters) – Lebanon’s influential Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that a new government could be formed within a few days if talks keep going positively.

Weeks of political dispute have delayed a deal on a new cabinet that must tackle a crippling financial meltdown – the worst crisis since a 1975-1990 civil war.

Veteran politician Saad al-Hariri was named premier for a fourth time last week, pledging to swiftly form a new cabinet which must then address a long list of problems.
