Following are summaries of some of the main stories in a selection of Lebanese newspapers Sunday. The Daily Star cannot vouch for the accuracy of these reports.

An-Nahar

A return to government, parliamentary “normalization” as a result of security experiment

Future exhorts the state to meet its responsibilities and end the demonstration

Amid the continuation of the sit-in by Sheikh Ahmad Assir in Sidon, preparations intensified at the end of the week to “normalize” parliamentary life through two sessions that will be held Monday and Tuesday as well as a return to government work through two sessions to be held Tuesday and Wednesday.

Information indicates that there may be positive developments in terms of ending the sit-in in Sidon in the coming few hours.

Sources told An-Nahar that the political atmosphere in the past few days has allowed many to catch their breath as the security measures taken in different parts of the country highlights the application of the government’s decision to lift the cover from those blocking roads or creating disorder and thus allowing [officials] to resume addressing the accumulating internal issues.

Ad-Diyar

Assir crisis continues – Debate on security or political solution

The latest suggestion put forward, which was at midnight, was that the tent and the sit-in by Sheikh Ahmad Assir on the main road in the northeast of Sidon be moved to someplace else where there can be no blocking of roads that lead to tension in the southern coastal city.

However, Sheikh Assir refused this suggestion, saying the residents of Sidon stood by him, contrary to the position of the Future Movement.

Assir said he received a telephone call from Interior Minister Marwan Charbel Friday who hoped the sheikh would reopen the road and end the sit-in. He said he was not convinced, and hinted that the demonstration could be expanded to Tripoli and the Bekaa.
