THE DAILYSTAR: Hariri backs Salam on new mechanism
–Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri Monday implicitly backed premier Tammam Salam’s bid to change the government’s decision-making mechanism, currently at the center of a widening row that has thrown the Cabinet into paralysis and prevented it from meeting for the second consecutive week.
Hariri also warned that the failure to elect a new president would not only affect the presidency seat, but also the country as a whole, while Speaker Nabih Berri decried that the vacuum has now spread to the other branches of power, the Cabinet and Parliament.
