Hamadeh: March 14 Officials to Meet to Issue Stance on Berri's Consultationsإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
March 14 MP Marwan Hamadeh announced that officials from the camp are set to meet again in order to discuss the recent consultations held with Speaker Nabih Berri aimed at revitalizing parliament activity, reported An Nahar daily on Sunday.
He told the daily that the heads of parliamentary committees and members of the parliament bureau will meet for a second time to take a united stand on the resumption of parliamentary work.
The officials had met at MP Butros Harb's residence on November 30 to warn against Berri's call for a meeting of joint parliamentary committees that would not be attended by the March 14-led opposition.
While the conferees held onto not postponing the 2013 parliamentary elections, they “considered any attempt by Berri to call for a meeting of joint parliamentary committees in the absence of March 14 MPs as a dangerous precedent.”
The opposition boycotted all parliamentary activity in the aftermath of the October 19 assassination of Internal Security Forces Intelligence Bureau chief Wissam al-Hasan after it blamed the government for the killing, and called for its resignation.
A delegation of March 14 MPs had met with Berri on Wednesday to inform him of their rejection of the resumption of parliament committees' work in their absence.
