Maronite Patriarch Beshara Boutros Rai called Sunday on the Lebanese officials to complete their duty and finalize the ministerial statement “in which they are not requested to solve the issues, but to include the constitutional principles and the projects that the cabinet considers as priorities within the short period of time before the presidential elections.” 


In his holy sermon during Sunday’s mass in Bkerke, Rai noted that the government and the political parties represented in it must not forget that this is a short-term cabinet and that its main duty is to hold the upcoming presidential elections. [LBC]
