Benjamin Redd, Journalist at the Daily Star, tweeted yesterday an interesting excel sheet showcasing the amount of times it took the past eight prime ministers to form their governments, the number of days from designation to formation, the numbers of days from formation to confidence or resignation and other insightful numbers.
As of today, it’s been 140 days since Hariri was designated to form a government, which is the third longest period we’ve spent in the past 10 years. The longest was 329 days with PM Tammam Salam.
If we sum up all the days spent without a government from 2005 till today, they amount to 882 days, which is almost 2 years and a half.
