President orders government to resign

Lebanese President Emile Lahoud says the government should resign now that it has lost its legitimacy.

It comes a day after five cabinet members resigned. If three more left, the government would automatically collapse.

It is an interesting comment coming from Lahoud, who has often been accused of lacking legitimacy. Great, now there's a lame duck government and a lame duck President.
