The first Cabinet session in over two weeks ended Thursday, with Prime Minister Tammam Salam declaring that a consensus formula would replace the body's current decision-making mechanism.The information minister did not reveal any amendments to the current mechanism, which requires unanimous support from all 24 ministers on Cabinet decisions, but said that Salam would no longer "tolerate" disruptions resulting from a lack of quorum.Cabinet then proceeded to study delayed agenda items that had been postponed due to the two-week pause in Cabinet's work.The agreement also calls on ministers to avoid using Cabinet sessions as a platform for political duels, as was often the case in the past.
