Lebanese lawmakers are bound to reach an agreement on the salary scale despite the debate over the ceiling of projected revenues and expenditures, a source close to the Speaker of Parliament Nabih Berri said Friday.The source said Berri was keen to resolve the issue of the salary hike for civil servants and public school teachers as soon as possible and was determined to hold talks with all the MPs until the matter came to a positive conclusion.Former Prime Minister and MP Fouad Siniora have refused to endorse the bill under its current form because this would lead to financial and economic disaster. Other MPs believe privatizing the electricity sector would save the Treasury $2 billion a year at least.
