Amid continued political wrangling between Lebanon's feuding factions, the parliament speaker postponed Friday a parliamentary session to elect a president until Jan. 12. It was the 11th such postponement since the first attempt by Lebanon's sharply divided parliament to elect a new president in September, as the Syrian-backed opposition and the anti-Syrian parliamentary majority bloc remain deadlocked over an amendment to the constitution and the shape of a future government. The postponement was widely expected earlier Friday by both pro-government and opposition lawmakers as political bickering continued to hold up the army chief's election.
