Maronite Patriarch: Administrative Appointments Must Comply with National Partnership, Equal Power-Sharing

Maronite Patriarch Bechara Al-Rahi on Sunday called on the government to achieve key administrative appointments based on national partnership, equal power-sharing, competence and integrity.

In his Sunday sermon, Al-Rahi said that each Lebanese citizen has the right to assume pubic posts without being judged based on his political affiliation, adding that the selections must be rather based on competence in order to prevent political meddling in administrative affairs.

The patriarch also stressed that it is the ruling authority's top duty to ensure economic growth and to protect public funds from squandering and corruption.
