Lebanon's Constitutional Council rejected several articles in the controversial new rent law, a judicial source said Thursday, further drawing out the prolonged battle over the issue.The council's action means that the law, which was republished in June in the Official Gazette after a previous rejection by the council, can't go into effect in four months as scheduled, the source told The Daily Star. He added that the law was sent back to Parliament. The head of the lawyer committee challenging the rent law, Adib Zakhour, said that the law would not go in to effect until it was reviewed by Parliament. However, the law was republished in the Official Gazette in June, which meant that it was set to go in to effect six months after the date of its publication.
