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.
