MP Saliba ends parliament sit-in

| Monday 18 September 2023

MP Najat Aoun Saliba announced she has decided to end her sit-in in the parliament, which she has been observing since January, alongside MP Melhem Khalaf, in protest against the failure to elect a president.

In a statement, MP Saliba explained that her sit-in was aiming to push for ending the presidential vacuum.

"But," she said, "we discovered that the Parliament Speaker refused to convene the parliament in open sessions to elect a president for many reasons."

"We also discovered the lack of will among the lawmakers to elect a president," she continued.

"We spared no effort in order to break through the presidential vacuum, but to no avail," she said.
