BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon's speaker of parliament Nabih Berri said on Wednesday that "procrastination in forming the government has a negative affect on the situation in Lebanon", al-Manar television reported.

Saad al-Hariri was designated to continue in his role as prime minister and form a government on May 24 after the country's parliament elections on May 6.
