The Future Movement's political bureau Friday released details of its plan for the coming post-election months, with Prime Minister Saad Hariri being granted "exceptional powers" as head of the party as the new Lebanese government is set to be formed.Future's performance in the elections was less than stellar, with the party's presence in the Parliament dropping from 32 seats to 20 after the elections, which were held based on a new law that introduced a proportional system.
