A marathon six-hour Cabinet session ended Monday with the approval of a series of items, and marked the conclusion of the term of Prime Minister Saad Hariri's government. Starting at around noon, discussions of a 59-item agenda ended just after 6 p.m. at Cabinet's final session before entering caretaker status at midnight. Cabinet also renewed the term for head of the Public Corporation for Housing Rony Lahoud for another four years; extended the work of the disaster risk management unit; approved the production of 1 million biometric passports; and agreed to provide municipalities around the Abay-Ain Drafil landfill with financial incentives dating back to 2013 .Controllers canceled a strike planned for Monday after soon-to-be-caretaker-Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Public Works and Transport Minister Youssef Fenianos assured them their demands would be discussed at the Cabinet session.
