BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s cabinet is discussing the last point related to the power sector in a list of reforms after agreeing all the others, the president’s office said on Monday.

The government convened to approve a reform package, including halving ministers’ wages, in a bid to defuse the biggest protests against the country’s ruling elite in decades.

Power sector reform is one of the biggest issues the government is tackling.
