NNA - President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun, met MP General Jamil El-Sayed, today at the Presidential Palace.
General affairs and government developments were deliberated “in light of the emergency complications that threaten worse consequences if a new president is not elected, and the constitutional problems that may result from that at the general national level or at the level of managing state affairs”.
Major General Al-Sayed said: "Perhaps the quickest solution to this problem is the initiative to elect a President of the Republic, because this will inevitably lead to the formation of a new government according to more stable conditions”.
MP Al Sayed also indicated that he discussed with President Aoun the issue of maritime demarcation of the southern borders in light of the expectation that Lebanon would receive a semi-final text from the American mediator, Amos Hochstein, within the next two days.
Former Minister Shreim:
The President received the former Minister, Dr. Ghada Shreim.
Shreim revealed that she had discussed with His Excellency the President the issue of the Lebanese University’s dues for the proceeds of the PCR at Beirut Airport after canceling Article 76 of the budget related to it, and referring the matter to the judiciary, “noting that the file has been stuck in the judiciary for months”.
“We are on the verge of a new academic year that is still faltering” Shreim said, considering these dues as “ A right for the university and a door to salvation." -- Presidency Press Office
