NNA - Former Prime Minister Najib Mikati highlighted on Friday the obligation to endorse a new election law based upon a proportional vote mode, with Lebanese divided as 13 electoral districts.

"We consider the bill my government had forwarded to the Parliament, and which adopts proportionality among 13 districts, as the best, especially that it had been approved by the different political forces that were represented in that government," Mikati told his visitors at his Tripoli residence.

The lawmaker also said that President Michel Aoun's insistence on amending the election law was a strong indicator to the possibility to reach a new vote system.
