Berri says no dispute with Sleiman
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri said in remarks published Monday there is no dispute between him and President Michel Sleiman as he noted it is too early to discuss the presidential elections due next year.

“The ties are normal with the president; there are no disputes between us. I have contacted him before he headed to Paris to check on his health,” Berri told Al-Joumhouria daily.

The speaker’s remarks came as a dismissive response to some media reports saying that he had allegedly launched verbal attacks against the president.

Berri also said that he has not received any requests from Sleiman concerning the extension of his presidential term.

“No one has spoken to me about the subject. If anyone does I will tell them to get back to me after May 25,” he said.

The next presidential elections are due in May 2014.

Sleiman has repeatedly said he is against the extension of his own term and that he would challenge such a proposal.

The deepening political deadlock in Lebanon has nevertheless raised concerns that the presidential election would not be held on time.
