March 8 officials praised former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's support for a dialogue with Hezbollah Friday, amid high expectations that the talks between the two rival parties would help defuse long-brewing Sunni-Shiite tensions.The Constitutional Council, meanwhile, unanimously rejected a challenge filed by MP Michel Aoun's Change and Reform bloc against the extension of Parliament's mandate by more than two years, saying its decision was designed to prevent further vacuums in state institutions. Earlier Friday, the Constitutional Council chose to reject the challenge filed by Aoun's bloc against the extension of Parliament's mandate.The council's decision came amid calls by Aoun's bloc, civil organizations and NGOs to annul the extension and hold parliamentary elections.The move prompted Aoun's bloc, whose MPs had boycotted the vote, to file a challenge against the extension with the 10-member Constitutional Council.The Lebanese Forces, which voted for the extension of Parliament's term, praised the council's decision.
