NNA - Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi on Sunday expressed concern that the fate of presidential election sessions will continue to be linked to "consensus."
"We continue to pray for the election of a president. How can a parliament consider vacuum as being the possible option and election to be impossible?" al-Rahi added, in his Sunday Mass sermon.
"If MPs don't rebel against themselves and elect a sovereign president, the people must not be blamed if they rebel against them," al-Rahi said.
"The failure to elect a new president would be an act of sabotage to undermine the main post," the patriarch warned. --- Naharnet
