레바논의 대통령 선거가 세 번째 연기됐습니다.
레바논 의회의 나비흐 베리 의장실은 10일 발표한 성명에서 대통령 선출을 위한 의회소집이 오는12일에서 오는 21일로 재조정됐다고 밝혔습니다.
레바논 대통령 선거가 이처럼 연기되는 것은 레바논 정당들간의 단일 후보추대 합의가 이루어지지 않기 때문입니다.
친 시리아계인 에밀 라후드 레바논 대통령은 오는 24일로 임기가 만료돼 퇴임합니다.
Lebanon's parliament speaker Nabih Berri has postponed presidential election for a third time to allow rival factions more time to agree on a consensus candidate.
The speaker's office issued a statement today (Saturday), saying the parliament session to elect president, which was set for Monday has been rescheduled for November 21st.
Lebanon's parliament has already twice postponed a vote on a successor to pro-Syrian President Emile Lahoud, whose term expires November 24th.
Friday, French presidential advisor Claude Gueant held talks with Lebanese government and opposition figures in Beirut, discussing the selection of a possible compromise candidate.
Gueant says French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner will visit Beirut next week to continue efforts to break the deadlock.
Lebanon's anti-Syrian parliamentary majority wants to replace Mr. Lahoud with one of its own members, but opposition parties led by Hezbollah have rejected the majority's candidates.
