The Future Movement and Hezbollah held a new round of talks Tuesday night despite a fierce war of words that raged between the two sides in the past few days threatening to unravel their nearly year-old dialogue. Meanwhile, Parliament's Secretariat failed to agree on the agenda of a legislative session intended to approve urgent draft laws, including the World Bank's $600 million soft loans, and decided to hold another meeting next week to mull new bills. Senior officials of the Future Movement and Hezbollah met in a new dialogue session that is bound to help defuse tension that reached an unprecedented level in the past few days as the two sides traded accusations over paralysis in Parliament and the government. An electoral law and the citizenship draft law are major demands of the FPM and the Lebanese Forces, which have linked their participation in any legislative session to adding these two draft laws to the agenda.LF MP Antoine Zahra, a member of Parliament's Secretariat, said his party and the FPM insist on adding a new electoral law to the agenda of any legislative session.
