Lebanese Interior Ministry issued a decree calling for the upcoming Parliamentary elections to take place on June 7, local Elnashra website reported Monday.

The decree said the elections in all Lebanese provinces and constituencies will be held in the same day, however, the 2005 elections were held separately in each province on Sunday for four consecutive weeks.

The election law states that the decree announcing the election date should be issued 90 day prior to the date of the elections, but this time the decree was issued 157 days before.

The upcoming Parliamentary elections in June will take place according to the 1960 election law, a demand urged by the opposition, and signed by Lebanese rival leaders in Doha on May 21, 2008.

The election law used in 2005 was refused by many Lebanese leaders because it was imposed by the Syrians in 2000, and did not consider the sectarian combinations in the constituencies.
