Outgoing Lebanese President Michel Aoun told Reuters on Saturday his nation could be sliding into “constitutional chaos” as he has no successor and the cabinet is already operating in a caretaker capacity.

Aoun is set to leave the presidential palace in Baabda on Sunday, a day before his six-year term ends, but four rounds of electoral sessions in parliament have been unable to produce a candidate with a majority.
