(Reuters) - Lebanese lawmakers agreed on Friday to postpone a June parliamentary election until late next year due to instability in neighboring Syria and political deadlock at home.

A senior political source who took part in a vote which endorsed the postponement told Reuters, "They endorsed it in 10 minutes."

The election is now expected to be held in November 2014.
