The legislative session was adjourned at the UNESCO Palace called by Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, after the “Strong Lebanon” deputies withdrew, which led to the loss of the quorum.

After the session, the head of the Administration and Justice Committee, Representative George Adwan, pointed out that “there is confusion about setting the date for the elections, and it is not true that the Council set it on March 27, and the Council made amendments to the deadlines that allow the government to bring the date closer if it wants to, so setting the date is one of its powers.”

He added, “The Constitutional Council must take into account that we have elections, and in the event of a challenge to its responsibility, to implement the constitution, because nothing should impede the holding of the elections.”

As for Representative Ali Hassan Khalil, he pointed out that “there is a party that wants to flaunt the parliamentary elections under a constitutional cover and are committed to holding the elections on their constitutional dates.

At the beginning of the session, Berri said, requesting to speed up the discussions, “Prime Minister Najib Mikati has to leave today to participate in a conference abroad, so I want to finish today’s agenda.”

The House of Representatives approved a bill allocating 500 billion Lebanese pounds to support educational affairs, as well as a law to assist licensed tourism institutions in overcoming the crisis.

A discussion took place regarding deadlines for expatriates and the re-certification of the registration closure on November 20.

Commenting on the expatriates’ deadlines, Foreign Minister Abdullah Bu Habib said: “It is impossible to complete the issue within the current deadlines.”

As for the head of the Free Patriotic Movement, Habran Bassil, he considered that “the deadlines in the law amending the electoral law are not applicable, especially with regard to the issue of expatriates.”

The House of Representatives approved the request to approve the government’s accession to the United Nations Convention on International Settlement Emanating from Mediation.

The House of Representatives confirmed the early parliamentary elections law on March 27 instead of May 8, according to what was reported by the media.

A dispute took place between MPs Ali Hassan Khalil and Cesar Abi Khalil, against the background of Hassan Khalil’s accusation of violating the constitution for not calling for by-elections previously.

Speaker Berri said, “No one has attacked the president, and no one is more eager for the presidency than I am.”

In another context, Bassil renewed his demand for the “Megacentre”, and Berri only responded by saying: “Not everything we want is what we get.”

In addition, deputies from the Strong Lebanon bloc withdrew from the legislative session, where Bassil said, “We withdrew from the legislative session due to a major constitutional violation,” stressing that “the country cannot tolerate another disagreement. Four points and must be voted on article by article.”
