Lebanese lawmakers fail again to elect president

Published: 05.15.14, 13:57 / Israel News

BEIRUT - The Lebanese parliament has failed in its fourth attempt in a month's time to hold a session to elect the country's new president, a move that heralds a presidential vacuum in the tiny Arab nation.


As in previous sessions, the vote could not be held on Thursday as lawmakers, many of them allied with the militant Hezbollah group, boycotted the voting.


With no quorum in the house, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri adjourned the session and scheduled a fifth round of voting for May 22. (AP)
