The Progressive Socialist Party opposes any constitutional amendments as a means to resolve the presidential vacuum, party minister and MP Akram Chehayeb said Thursday.Speaking to reporters after a meeting with a Free Patriotic Movement delegation headed by MP Alain Aoun to lobby for FPM chief Michel Aoun's presidential initiative, Chehayeb said it was "dangerous" to modify the Constitution "in light of the current domestic and regional turmoil". Chehayeb reiterated his party's support for its presidential candidate Henry Helou, but said the PSP might endorse another candidate at a later time.Chehayeb apologized for PSP leader Walid Jumblatt's absence from the meeting, saying the PSP chief was overseas and was represented by his son, Taymur.
