He further added:

We are facing an earthquake that struck the country, with all its humanitarian, social, economic and national repercussions.

After the announcement of resignation, President Michel Aoun has asked the government to stay on in a caretaker capacity until a new cabinet is formed.

In the past too, the existing political system of Lebanon has been blamed for causing instability in the country and the Lebanese people want a new system in place.
