Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri chaired at Ain El-Tineh, a meeting of the Parliament’s Bureau, attended by Deputy Speaker Elie Ferzli and MPs Alain Aoun, Samir Al-Jisr, Hagop Pakradounian, and Michel Moussa.
After the meeting, Ferzli commented on the general amnesty law, saying it will be on the agenda of the next plenary session since it had been on the agenda of the last session. “Speaker Berri had lifted the session at the time due to the withdrawal of certain MPs. Therefore, this law remains on the agenda.”
As for the observations made by some parliamentary blocs on the amnesty law, Ferzli pointed out that “these observations will be the subject of discussion in the plenary session.”
In response to a question about government affairs, Ferzli replied: “Pessimism no longer prevails. There are promising potentials to bring about a qualitative development in the government formation process, but we must wait,” describing former Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s initiative as “qualitative and thus must be valued and taken into consideration.”
