FPM inclined to take part in Berri's dialogue
The Free Patriotic Movement seems to be inclined to take part in the presidential dialogue that Speaker Nabih Berri has called for and is expected to be held in early October, despite FPM chief Jebran Bassil’s latest criticism of the Speaker’s “ambiguous format.”
“The FPM is yet to take a final decision, but it has expressed positive readiness to take part in a dialogue that would be limited in time and would end with electoral sessions,” MP Alain Aoun of the FPM told Asharq al-Awsat newspaper in remarks published Tuesday.
“The FPM is convinced that it is impossible to reach the election of a president without the coming together of blocs from the two camps -- most if not all of them. Therefore the idea of dialogue is acceptable, but participation hinges on its shape and mechanism and whether they are appropriate,” Aoun added.
