Tension between Berri and Bassil will cause vacuum?

What is the secret of the calm controlling the battle for the presidency of the House of Representatives? Is it true that President Nabih Berri is managing the game silently and cleverly until he reaches the desired result? The last possibility is likely, given that all direct and indirect contacts with Ain al-Tineh are with the Free Patriotic Movement.

Berri needs the current for two reasons: to secure a somewhat honorable majority for his return to the presidency of the parliament, and to secure Christian charter. The Free Patriotic Movement realizes Berri’s urgent need for him, so we see him negotiating, arguing, and maneuvering in order to achieve the gains he wants.

According to the information, the Free Patriotic Movement presents an integrated basket that begins with the presidency of the House of Representatives, the Vice President and the Council’s office, and passes through the government as a president and members, to reach the presidency. Is the Shiite duo in this contained? until now no. Hence the stagnation, procrastination and delay. The duo, specifically Hezbollah, does not want Gebran Bassil to be promised the presidency, because he cannot bear the experience of disrupting the country for years, as he did in his battle to deliver Michel Aoun.

On the other hand, Basil will not back down. His dream of the presidency is stronger than anything else. While waiting for a solution between the Free Patriotic Movement and Amal, do not be surprised if the early and long vacuum is the result. Miserable Parliament begins its term with disruption, and miserable representatives begin their tenure and the dollar continues to fly!
