Syria’s Assad asks PM Hussein Arnous to form new cabinet

AMMAN (Reuters) – Syrian President Bashar al Assad has again tasked Prime Minister Hussein Arnous with forming a new government after he became a caretaker premier following polls last year that extended Assad’s presidency.

Assad designated Arnous as prime minister last August to replace Imad Khamis as Syria grappled with a major economic crisis and a plunging currency.
