BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt discussed Tuesday the various proposed draft electoral laws during talks at the former's residence in Paris.

Hariri's media office said in a statement the meeting focused on the regional situation and the challenges facing Lebanon.

"Hariri and Jumblatt emphasized the need to preserve the Taif Accord and the coexistence formula in Lebanon, because they protect national unity and stability and help confront these challenges," the statement said.

"They also discussed the various proposed draft electoral laws and the positions of all parties regarding these drafts. They agreed to pursue consultation on this matter, in a way that serves the interest of Lebanon and the Lebanese," it added.

Hariri, who has been residing outside Lebanon for 21 months on security threats, held similar talks with several March 14 Christian figures Monday. Jumblatt was in Paris for talks with the French president, whom he met also on Monday.
