Lebanon has a new president!

Michel Naim Aoun (Arabic: ميشال عون‎‎, Arabic) (born on 30 September 1933) was elected president on 31 October 2016 on the 46th electoral session of the Lebanese parliament. Lebanon had been without a head of state, after President Michel Suleiman stepped down as president at the end of his term in May 2014, resulting in a deadlock as the Parliament failed to elect a successor for 29 months and 45 previous parliamentary sessions did not achieve the necessary quorum for a presidential ballot.

My congratulations and prayers to His Excellency president Michel Aoun.  May God give him the wisdom, health and the strength. Insh Allah!
