President Michel Suleiman stated that he refuses to take sides in the government dispute over resolving the electricity crisis, reported the daily An Nahar on Wednesday. He told the daily: “I believe that Premier Najib Miqati took the appropriate stand because he found the cost of Energy Minister Jebran Bassil’s proposal to be too high.” “He took the right position,” he added.

“If there are any doubts over any measure, then I choose transparency over any other step and so will the majority of the ministers,” said the president. [Link]
