The boycott of Parliament could affect the Cabinet, turning it into a caretaker government, Speaker Nabih Berri was quoted as saying by visitors."Boycotting Parliament would lead to dangerous repercussions because it obstructs the monitoring power [to Cabinet's activities] that Parliament practices, which turns the government into a caretaker one," Berri told visitors, according to a report published by An-Nahar daily Wednesday. The speaker said he would continue to call for parliamentary sessions despite a boycott by Christian lawmakers who argue Parliament cannot legislate in the wake of presidential void.
