Berri Adjourns Legislative Session to June 5إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Speaker Nabih Berri on Saturday adjourned to June 5 a legislative session that was scheduled to convene on May 29, as the fate of a new electoral law to rule the upcoming parliamentary polls remains unclear.
This is the second time that the Speaker adjourns the parliament meeting.
President Michel Aoun used his presidential powers in April and suspended a parliament meeting that was scheduled to extend the parliament's term.
His decision was aimed at giving local political forces more time to reach an agreement on a new electoral law.
Speaker Nabih Berri scheduled another session for May 15 following the president's decision.
