Lebanon Names New Prime Minister After Weeks of Political Uncertainty

BEIRUT—Lebanon named its ambassador to Germany as the country’s next prime minister, an appointment that is unlikely to placate protesters who have sought a complete overhaul of the nation’s leadership following the deadly Beirut explosion.

Mustapha Adib was asked by President Michel Aoun to form a new government, the state-run National News Agency reported Monday, having secured the backing of a majority of lawmakers and several former prime ministers, including Saad Hariri and Najib Mikati.
