There have been no protest actions in Lebanon for two days, but the situation remains unstable, chief editor of Beirut-based Armenian newspaper says.

Shahan Kandaharian, editor-in-chief of Azdak daily, said there was an attempt to hold a meeting of the parliament following PM and government resignation, but demonstrators blocked the entrance to the parliament.

“The meeting was postponed due to lack of quorum,” Kandaharian told Armenian News-NEWS.am.

There are no talks between demonstrators and the president or the speaker of the parliament.

“The protesters continue demanding independent, apolitical government that will prepare the country to the elections,” he said.

Despite the uncertainty, banks are working for already two days, and clients can get small amounts, which is a proof of deep financial crisis.

As for the Armenian community, they do not have a position as such. Since the protesters demand that the government system is not politicized, the Armenian and other communities do not make any statements.

“However, there are Armenians among the demonstrators,” Kandaharian added.
