LEBANON - For Patriarch al-Rahi, parliament's extension "is illegal" and "contrary to the constitution" [AN]


With 95 out of 97 MPs voting for the bill, the assembly extended its mandate by an additional two years and seven months. Some see it as a prelude for an agreement between opposing factions to elect a new president and pass a new electoral law. US and EU ambassadors react negatively to the measure.
