Calm characterized the first day of Parliament's session to debate the government's policy statement Wednesday, with restless MPs resorting to side chats, breaks and jokes to kill time during the long discussions.At the beginning of the session, Zahle MP Nicholas Fattoush interrupted Salam while he was reading the policy statement, complaining about the addition of a clause on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon not mentioned in the copies distributed to MPs.Future Movement MP Serge Torsarkissian also got into an argument with former Prime Minister Najib Mikati after he accused the Tripoli MP of failing to be the centrist politician he had claimed to be.Shortly after noon, MP Nabil Nicholas, from Michel Aoun's parliamentary bloc, told Berri jokingly that it was time for Christian MPs to break their fast.The MPs' torture was over shortly before 3 p.m., when Berri adjourned the session until 6 p.m.
