NNA - Speaker of the House, Nabih Berri, welcomed at his Ein Teeneh residence on Thursday newly elected Member of Parliament, Jean Obeid, with whom he discussed the political situation in the country, particularly the post-election period.
Berri then met with United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Pernille Kardel. Discussions between the pair focused on developments in Lebanon and the region.
Also, newly elected MP, Toni Frangieh, visited the head of Parliament. “We are the first to support Berri's re-election as head of Parliament,” he said, hoping that alliances between the new MPs would be made clear in the near future.
Berri also received newly elected MPs Adnan Traboulsi and Abdel Rahim Mourad, with whom he broached the political situation in the country.
On another level, the House Speaker received a phone call from his Kuwaiti counterpart, Manchanda al-Ghanem, in which the latter congratulated him on the results of legislative elections.
Sheikh Akl of the Druze sect, Naïm Hassan, also contacted Berri to offer him well-wishes marking the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.
