"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Berri Says Parliamentary Elections to be Held on Time- Naharnet

Speaker Nabih Berri has said that the parliamentary elections will be held on their due date based on the electoral law that would be available at time.
If the rival parliamentary blocs failed to strike an agreement, then the elections would be held based on the 1960 law, Berri told As Safir daily published on Tuesday.
Despite his remarks, the speaker said that he has not yet lost hope on the possibility to reach a deal on a new draft-law.
Berri stressed that the municipal polls, which are scheduled for next month, and the parliamentary elections are not intertwined.
In November 2014, lawmakers extended their mandate until June 2017.
