Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri has announced that he would attend national dialogue if invited by President Michel Aoun, as he warned against the postponement of parliamentary elections.
“I cannot boycott a dialogue I’m invited to, but what’s important is the result of any dialogue,” Berri said in an interview with the Lubnan al-Kabir news portal.
The Speaker also stressed that the parliamentary elections must be held on time, warning that postponement would have “disastrous consequences for Lebanon.”
He also emphasized “the great importance of the participation of ex-PM Saad Hariri and al-Mustaqbal Movement, given what they represent, in this juncture.”
He added that “any boycott by them would have repercussions on the shape of the next parliament.”
