Lebanon’s Future Movement has reelected Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri as its leader.

Hariri, who served as Lebanese prime minister from 2009 to 2011, is also currently in the process of forming the country’s next government following the election in late October of President Michel Aoun.

Hariri’s election as head of the Future Movement came at the conclusion of a Future Movement congress held Saturday and Sunday in capital Beirut, in which 2,400 movement members participated.

Congress participants also elected members of the movement’s 32-seat political bureau, 20 of whom are elected and 12 of whom are appointed, according to movement bylaws.

Lebanon’s Future Movement was established by late Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in the 1990s.

Saad Hariri, Rafik’s son, assumed leadership of the movement following his father’s assassination in 2005.
