Assad appoints PM to form new government

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Sunday authorized Prime Minister Hussein Arnous to form a new government.

If he succeeds with the task, Arnous would extend his tenure as prime minister as he was previously appointed to the post by Assad in August 2020 amid a worsening economic crisis.

Assad won the 2021 Syrian presidential election with 95.19% of the vote.
