Prime Minister Tammam Salam is expected to head the Lebanese delegation to the U.N. General Assembly in New York if the political arch-foes failed to elect a new president by the time of the meeting, al-Joumhouria newspaper reported on Friday.
According to the daily, the delegation will be comprised of various ministers that represent different parties.
An Nahar newspaper reported that Salam will head a small delegation that will include Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil and a limited number of advisers.
