Until now, political sources, have said there is no candidate for speaker other than the incumbent, Nabih Berri, who has held the position since 1992 .Berri has said that he separates his relationship between President Michel Aoun and the FPM, which the president founded but is now headed by Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil.The talks could lead to positive results and prevent what many have expected – a scenario where the FPM's parliamentary bloc does not back Berri on the basis of reciprocity, as Berri and his bloc did not vote for Aoun in the parliamentary session to elect a new president on Oct. 31, 2016 .Ferzli is known to be close to Berri, Bassil and the president himself.
