BEIRUT: Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri left Lebanon Wednesday on a private visit to Italy, the Amal Movement's NBN TV station said.
NBN gave no other details, and Berri's office said it was unaware of his trip.
Berri apparently has no major commitments after a voting session last week failed to elect a new Lebanon president and after lawmakers botched another attempt Tuesday to vote on a controversial pay hike draft law.
Lebanon is experiencing a void in the presidency, after former President Michel Sleiman's term expired Sunday, with all attempts to elect a successor failing.
Berri adjourned the election session to June 9 and has rescheduled the meeting to discuss the modified salary scale for June 10.
