Beirut, – Lebanese President Michel Aoun denied on Thursday the possibility of a parliamentary vacuum or a third term extension in Lebanon, which expires in June amid a lack of consensus on a new electoral law.

General Michel Aoun, on Thursday promised that all the existing national obstacles would soon be thrashed out.

“We will reach agreement over a new election law; it is high time we became capable of endorsing a new law, especially after nine years of futile attempts,” National news Agency (NNA) quoted Aoun as saying.

“None should even dream of having the parliament’s mandate be extended, to stick to the already existing electoral law, or to even allow a state of political vacuum to prevail,” the President added, promising a state of comprehensive nationalism tantamount to the successful Lebanese national unity.
