Deputy Speaker Farid Makari Wednesday said there is no single electoral law which will satisfy everyone following a Parliament joint committees meeting which failed again to reach an agreement on a new voting system.The MPs were expected to make little progress in Wednesday's session, one day after rival leaders at the national dialogue failed to move forward with talks aimed at reaching an agreement to replace the contested 1960 majoritarian system.Another proposal, presented by Berri, adopts a hybrid electoral law in which 64 MPs would be elected on the basis of proportional representation and the remaining 64 on a majoritarian system.
