Lebanon is facing multiple internal crises as the flames of the regional fire lap at its doorstep. Rather than putting their differences aside to find solutions, politicians are calculating how best to minimize the anticipated popular backlash to yet another seemingly inevitable extension to Parliament's mandate. Berri is reportedly hoping this will force the political powers, especially the Future Movement, to attend the Parliament in order to approve the salary law and the extension.The source concluded by saying that Berri was moving toward convening a tripartite political meeting between Khalil, Future Movement official Nader Hariri, and Progressive Socialist Party representative Health Minister Wael Abu Faour to prepare the political landscape for the extension of Parliament's mandate.
