baroud 0218Commenting on the Lebanese Parliament electoral subcommittee’s failure so far to reach consensus over an electoral law for use in te upcoming elections, former Interior Minister Ziad Baroud told LBCI on Saturday that one out of four scenarios may take place .

“The first scenario is holding the elections according to the 1960 electoral law, the second is reaching an agreement over a new electoral law which allows a technical delay for the elections, the third scenario is the political void which is the most dangerous, and the fourth scenario is the extension of the Parliament’s mandate which is an unconstitutional option,”

Baroud told LBCI that “the most important thing right now is finding a solution before May 31st in order to avoid holding an extraordinary session for the Parliament.”
