    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, NOVEMBER 5 - The Lebanese Parliament on Wednesday decided to further postpone political elections until June 2017, extending its mandate for an entire four-year legislature after a first postponement in June 2013.

    It is the first time since the end of the civil war in 1990 that such a decision is taken, following political and sectarian tensions, in particular over the civil war in Syria. (ANSAmed)
