Jumblat to meet Berri, his son to meet al-Rahi


Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat will continue his presidential file efforts and will visit Speaker Nabih Berri in Ain el-Tineh in the coming hours, MTV reported on Monday.

Jumblat will also dispatch his son, Democratic Gathering chief MP Taymour Jumblat, to meet with Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi in Bkirki, the TV network said.

Media reports have said that Jumblat and the Shiite Duo are leading “strenuous attempts to break the presidential deadlock.”

Jumblat is “seeking to limit the nominations to two candidates who can be promoted as settlement candidates,” the reports said.

Well well, it looks like Progressive Socialist Party leader, Walid Jumblat, is on a mission to save the day! He's going to visit the Speaker, Nabih Berri, in Ain el-Tineh, and he's even sending his son to meet with the Maronite Patriarch. Talk about a family affair!
