The Parliament's Administration and Justice Committee, headed by MP Robert Ghanem, also convened to continue discussing the new rent law following the Constitutional Council's decision to annul a number of its articles last summer.Separately, a joint news conference was held at the Parliament by MPs Joseph Maalouf, Yassin Jaber, Mohammad Qabbani and Farid Khazen, who have been tasked by Speaker Nabih Berri to follow up on laws passed by Parliament that were never implemented.Criticizing this state of affairs, Jaber said some ministers had become stronger than Parliament, particularly in the wake of the presidential vacuum, while MP Marwan Hamade accused some of flat-out ignoring a number of laws passed.
