RAHI Meets Press Syndicate: Constitution The Weakest Party in Lebanon
16 Jan 2020
Lebanon - Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros Rahi, on Thursday regretted that amid all the hubbub currently spiraling the nation, the weakest party was the Lebanese constitution.
Rahi was speaking before a visiting delegation representing the press syndicate, along with its president, Aouni Kaaki.
In the wake of the meeting, Kaaki relayed Rahi's appeal to the political class to set aside personal interests "because the country is on the brink of collapse."
He also indicated that Rahi believed that it was totally up to the designated Prime Minister and the President of the Republic to form a government.
"Fact is, political parties have been participating in the formation of the government, which is not constitutionally correct," he added as quoting Rahi.
According to Kaaki, Rahi also warned politicians from taking the demands of citizens lightly, requesting of the Prime Minister to carry out his task and not give up.
As for the resignation of the President of the Republic, Kaaki reiterated Rahi's firm stance against it and asserted that a Christian summit will be held soon if the formation of a government is not announced in the near future.
