BEIRUT: Speaker Nabih Berri Tuesday postponed once again a series of legislative sessions due to a repeated boycott by lawmakers in both the March 8 and March 14 coalitions.
The session, the ninth to fail to convene in a seven-month period, was adjourned until March 4 due to a lack of quorum.
Parliament has failed to convene since Berri first called for sessions in June after extending Parliament’s term.
The majority of parliamentary blocs object to discussing a number of the 45 draft laws listed on Parliament's agenda.
Many boycotting parties argue that under a resigned government, Parliament can only convene to discuss urgent issues.
