The parliamentary session that was aimed at electing a new Lebanese president was adjourned for March 2nd due to lack of quorum, according to the National News Agency (NNA).

Only 51 MPs arrived for the parliamentary session on Monday, which needed two-thirds to reach quorum, or 86 of Parliament’s 128 members.

Speaker Nabih Berri was reportedly present at the 35th parliamentary session on Monday.

Last month, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed that the resistance party backs the head of Change and Reform bloc, General Michel Aoun for presidency; this was later supported by MP Samir Geagea of the Kata’eb Party.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
