MP Fadi Karam of the Lebanese Forces announced Friday that the latest initiative by LF leader Samir Geagea regarding the electoral law has the ability to prevent bad scenarios such as returning to the 1960 law, parliamentary vacuum or an extension of parliament's term.

“Dr. Geagea's latest initiative might be the last solution should no agreement be reached during the next two days,” Karam added, following talks with Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of Beirut Elias Aude.

“Dr. Geagea's initiative calls for consensus on a law based on full proportional representation and should some disagreements linger over the law's restraints, they would be put to a cabinet vote,” the MP explained.

LF deputy head MP George Adwan meanwhile held talks on Friday in Ain el-Tineh with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri.

The National News Agency said talks tackled “the latest developments regarding the electoral law.”

Adwan for his part said “progress is being made but nothing is final.”

“Contacts and deliberations will continue in this regard,” he added.
