Speaker Nabih Berri will soon call for a Parliament session to discuss urgent draft laws, his visitors said Tuesday, despite opposition expressed by some Christian parties to legislative activity during the presidential vacuum.Earlier, Lebanese Forces MP Antoine Zahra said that his group opposed holding legislative sessions while there was a presidential void unless it was to pass vital draft laws, which he said were only three.The Batroun lawmaker said his group supported what he called "exceptional" legislative activities to endorse pressing and vital draft laws.He said LF MPs would only take part in a Parliament session to endorse a new election law, the 2015 draft budget and the long awaited new salary scale for the public sector. The MPs expect that Parliament's Secretariat would reach a compromise regarding the agenda of the upcoming session which would include some draft laws viewed as vital by the LF among other draft bills.
