Boycott or blank vote: What will Franjieh supporters do in June 14 session?


Hezbollah and Amal are holding ongoing talks to decide on what to do during an upcoming presidential election session on June 14, al-Akhbar newspaper reported Tuesday.

One of the ideas that supporters of Marada leader Suleiman Franjieh are discussing is whether to attend the session, the daily said.

It added that the MPs might cast blank ballots during the first round and leave before the second round to strip the session of its quorum, in order to postpone the session and win more time.

"The Shiite Duo has the right to thwart quorum, exactly as the opposition camp was publicly declaring that it would block quorum to prevent Franjieh from becoming president," Ain el-Tineh sources told al-Jadeed Monday.
