Patriarch Al-Rahi lamented the “atmosphere of grudges” among the political parties and blocs.
“We will not remain silent. We reject the paralyzing of the country, suspension of the constitution, preventing the formation of a government, and blocking of the presidential election,” Al-Rahi said on Sunday.
He also rejected the imposition of a presidential vacancy, the violation of the position of the Presidency, and the “destruction” of the state of Lebanon and its special characteristics in the Levant and in the world.
He added: “We are waiting for the loyal citizens to share our rejection and to demand, before October 31, for Lebanon to have a government and a president from the national independent environment.”
