The escalating feud between President Michel Aoun and Speaker Nabih Berri over the signing of a controversial decree promoting a number of Army officers, which has reflected a long-simmering political discord between the two leaders, can be resolved only by direct intervention by Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah, parliamentary sources said Friday.A few days after MP Mohammad Raad, head of Hezbollah's parliamentary bloc, said he feels proud of Aoun being president, Berri pronounced the 1989 Taif Accord, the Constitution and the power-sharing formula between Muslims and Christians dead after he implicitly accused the president of violating the accord by signing the officers' promotion decree and ignoring the need for the finance minister's approval.It is no longer a secret, especially after everyone, including the president and the Parliament speaker, have acknowledged that the differences between Aoun and Berri have transcended technical matters and the implementation of constitutional articles on the leaders' powers, becoming a political discord, whose details and reasons have not yet been disclosed by any of the two leaders, the sources said.
