BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri Wednesday postponed once more a series of legislative sessions due to a repeated boycott by lawmakers in both the March 8 and March 14 coalitions.
The session, the eighth to fail to convene in a six-month period, was adjourned until Jan. 28 due to a lack of quorum.
The boycott is a further sign of the ongoing political deadlock in the country.
Parliament has failed to convene since Berri first called for sessions in June because the majority of parliamentary blocs object to discussing a number of items on Parliament's agenda.
There are 45 draft laws listed on the agenda, including one on extending the term of top security officials due for retirement.
Many boycotting parties argue that under a resigned government, Parliament can only convene to discuss urgent issues.
