Al-Rahi: We warn against any attempt to postpone the elections under illogical pretexts

The Maronite Patriarch, Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros Al-Rahi, affirmed that “the parliamentary elections are not only a periodic constitutional entitlement, but a stage to renew national life through democracy and popular will.”

“It is time for parliamentary life to regularize, so that political forces compete under the constitution’s roof for change for the better, so we warn against any attempt to postpone the elections under illogical and non-national pretexts, and we insist that they happen on their constitutional dates, in order to ensure the people’s right to vote and change and preserve Lebanon,” Al- Rahi added.

He believed that “the decision of the General Authority of the Court of Cassation restored the judiciary’s prestige and restored hope for the completion of the investigation away from interests.”
