During the morning session, one or two deputies from each bloc will speak briefly.
In the evening session Prime Minister Najib Miqati will address the parliament and respond to the remarks. The voting on the government’s plan will follow.
“It is confirmed that the government will win confidence,” Asharq al-Awsat newspaper said.
