Maronite Patriarch Slams Procrastination over Parliamentary By-Elections

Maronite Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi on Sunday slammed the sluggish delay of setting a date for parliamentary by-elections, saying that there is no legal reason for such a procrastination. In his weekly sermon, Rahi noted that the Lebanese also fear that the general elections will not take place on time under the pretext of dissatisfaction with the new law, expressing concern over a fourth extension of the Parliament’s term.
