Berri Says Things to Be Put Back on the Right Track, Sets out Parliament's Priorities

Speaker Nabih Berri on Saturday slammed the "organized campaign" targeting the Parliament to thwart efforts aimed at approving a new vote law, saying that priority should go to this issue although the salary hike is a rightful demand. "As efforts were ongoing to approve a new election law, attention was suddenly shifted to the ranks and salaries scale,” Berri said in a statement, noting that the salary hike is a well-deserved right that should have been granted to civil servants more than 10 years ago.
