Lebanese lawmakers again fail to elect president

Published: 04.30.14, 13:57 / Israel News

BEIRUT - Lebanese lawmakers have again failed to elect a new head of state as legislators affiliated with a Hezbollah-led alliance foiled the attempt by boycotting a second round of voting.


A two-thirds quorum of the legislature's 128 members is required for an electoral session. Wednesday's vote could not be held as lawmakers, many of them allied with Hezbollah, stayed away. Only 76 lawmakers showed up. (AP)
