Former Prime Minister Najib Mikati Tuesday called on rivals to focus electoral law discussions on two main proposals as there are no other alternatives.Mikati's proposal calls for dividing Lebanon into 13 districts based on proportionality, while Berri's law suggested a hybrid vote law, which calls for electing 64 MPs on the basis of proportional representation and the remaining 64 would be voted based on a winner-take-all system.Parliamentary joint committees are seeking to find a new vote law to replace the contested 1960 majoritarian system.
