“A parliament session will be scheduled for the beginning of the week to discuss the statement and it has become certain that the legislature will grant the government its confidence,” the sources said.
The sources added that Speaker Nabih Berri has expressed his willingness to convene parliament as soon as possible, even on Sunday.
