FPM to Reportedly Attend Parliament Session for Settling Bitar Row


A “scenario” for resolving the governmental and judicial crises is making progress, highly informed sources said.

The reported solution is based on the pledges that President Michel Aoun, Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Najib Miqati made to each other in their latest meeting in Baabda, the sources told al-Joumhouria newspaper in remarks published Wednesday.

Under the reported settlement, the Free Patriotic Movement-led Strong Lebanon bloc would “attend a parliamentary session for referring the file of the ex-PM and former ministers charged in the port blast case to the Higher Council for Trial of Presidents and Ministers,” the sources said.

“Cabinet would later convene with the participation of the Amal Movement and Hizbullah ministers, after which Information Minister George Kordahi would announce his resignation,” the sources added.
