It's the duty of the Parliament to make laws, Nabih Berri reminded lawmakers Wednesday, as debate continues over a second extension of the legislature's term.Berri has rejected the extension of Parliament on the grounds that lawmakers have failed to address the growing problems that the country is facing. With the exception of a burst of activity after the formation of Prime Minister Tammam Salam's Cabinet in February, Parliament has convened only a handful of times since it extended its term last year by 17 months. On Tuesday, Berri reportedly insisted that parliamentary approval of a controversial salary raise was a "must" before approving official certificates for Grade 9 and Grade 12 students.
