Moderation bloc begins presidential initiative amid 'green light' from Berri


The National Moderation parliamentary bloc has launched an initiative aimed at breaking Lebanon’s presidential vote deadlock, amid a “green light” from Speaker Nabih Berri, the Nidaa al-Watan newspaper reported on Monday.

Berri has asked the Moderation bloc not to use the phrase “dialogue session” so that it does not clash with his initiative, the daily said.

“The bloc’s effort is aimed at agreeing on one or several names and going to an open-ended session with successive rounds that would enjoy the constitutional quorum, which is two thirds of parliament’s members,” Nidaa al-Watan added.
