The Press Federation is preparing for the election of a new board next week and a new head replacing Mohammad Baalbaki, who has served in the post for over three decades.Sources from the federation told The Daily Star that efforts were underway to secure an agreement over a consensus list in order to avoid a battle.Although Salam and Kaaki, who are also running for the post of the head of the Press Federation, are both close to the Future Movement, the group is backing Kaaki for the post.Salam said he preferred that consensus was reached on one list rather than having a battle.Salam also questioned whether the elections could be postponed.The new head of the Press Federation would replace Baalbaki, who has held the post since February 1982 .
