A political decision has been taken to hold the parliamentary elections on time on March 27, media reports said on Thursday.
The polls will be held according to the current electoral law, which is based on one preferential vote and proportional representation in some districts.
Al-Joumhouria newspaper said the political parties have agreed that expats should take part in the elections abroad, unless “technical and logistic reasons” prevented that.
There is however an inclination not to introduce six new parliamentary seats for expats, the daily added.
Prime Minister Najib Miqati had said Tuesday that he supports “the implantation of the law” as to expat voting.
“They took part in the 2018 elections and must participate in the upcoming polls,” Miqati told a delegation from the Economic Committees.
Miqati, however, did not show enthusiasm for the introduction of six new seats, citing “technical difficulties.”
