Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea, in remarks published Saturday, rejected attempts to extend Parliament's term for the second time, saying the November polls should be held based on a new electoral law."The parliamentary election should be held according to a hybrid law [a majority and proportional representation] to correct representation, protect the National Accord and safeguard the republic".Last year, MPs approved a 17-month extension to their four-year term, citing security concerns and the failure of lawmakers to draft a new electoral law. Geagea along with the majority of the country's political groups had sought to pass a new electoral law that would provide better representation.
