Hariri, Jumblat Discuss Measures to Remove Obstacles Facing Institutions

Al-Mustaqbal Movement leader ex-PM Saad Hariri and Progressive Socialist Party chief MP Walid Jumblat have discussed ways to “remove the obstacles” facing state institutions, Hariri's press office announced on Thursday.

The statement said the meeting took place at Hariri's residence in France on Wednesday night.

The meeting “was an opportunity to discuss the developments in the region, ways to protect stability in Lebanon and remove the obstacles facing the work of constitutional institutions,” it added.

Lebanon plunged in a political crisis in May last year, when MPs failed to find a successor to President Michel Suleiman.

The crisis led to a stop in parliamentary sessions and growing dispute in the government that have paralyzed the work of constitutional institutions.
