Speaker Nabih Berri is mulling to call for a national dialogue session to find ways to resolve the political crisis resulting from the vacuum at Baabda Palace, parliamentary sources said.

The sources told pan-Arab daily al-Hayat published on Tuesday that “the complicated political situation that is accompanying the presidential vacuum, led Speaker Nabih Berri to study the possibility to invite for a national dialogue.”

The all-party talks, which ex-President Michel Suleiman was chairing, aims at finding a solution to the crisis, they said.

Suleiman chaired on May 5 a largely-boycotted national dialogue session, which called for continued talks on the country's defense strategy and stressed the importance of the implementation of the Taef accord.

The meeting was the last before his term expired on last Sunday.

As Safir daily said earlier this month that Berri could take over the initiative to chair the national dialogue sessions if there was a presidential vacuum over the failure of lawmakers to elect a new head of state.

The all-party talks were first launched by Berri in March 2006.
