Free Patriotic Movement head Michel Aoun and Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea Wednesday hailed as victory a compromise that paved the way for their participation in a controversial legislative session.The LF and the FPM agreed to attend Thursday's legislative session after receiving assurances from the Future Movement that the electoral law, which both parties have been lobbying to top Parliament's agenda, will be taken up in a future session after Thursday. Geagea and Aoun then called Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai and informed him of the discussions being held ahead of Thursday's legislative session. FPM MP Ibrahim Kanaan and LF media officer Melhem Riachi later met with Rai at his home and discussed the developments related to the session. Kataeb Party leader and MP Sami Gemayel insisted that no Parliament session should convene except to elect a president.
