Ex­tra­or­di­nary par­lia­men­tary ses­sion be­gins

Executive Magazine - - Last Month -

Pres­i­dent Michel Aoun re­con­vened Par­lia­ment for an ex­tra­or­di­nary ses­sion on June 21, which is set to last un­til Oc­to­ber 16. The move comes on the heels of the pas­sage of a long-awaited new elec­toral law in­cor­po­rat­ing pro­por­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tion into par­lia­men­tary elec­tions. Par­lia­ment is typ­i­cally only in ses­sion from March to May, and Oc­to­ber to De­cem­ber, but po­lit­i­cal in­fight­ing and the pres­i­den­tial in­ter­reg­num have contributed to pro­duce a list of ur­gent leg­is­la­tion. Bills ex­pected to be in­tro­duced for pas­sage in­clude a 2017 draft bud­get and a pro­posed salary hike for pub­lic sec­tor em­ploy­ees.
