Parliament Thursday wrapped up three days of sessions in which lawmakers passed 39 draft laws and postponed discussion on pending proposals until next week, ending more than a year of legislative paralysis.Speaker Nabih Berri called Parliament to meet next Wednesday and Thursday to discuss, among other draft laws, a proposal concerning the public sector's new salary scale should it be finalized by Parliament's joint committees, which are meeting Friday. Berri referred the draft law to a committee for further discussion, and eight other proposals were also pushed back to next week's scheduled sessions.Before closing the session, Berri stressed the importance of finalizing the draft law concerning the public sector's salary scale by next week, which he said would pave the way for lawmakers to begin debating proposed electoral laws.
