Rahi: There is only one constitutional solution

Maronite Patriarch Mar Beshara Boutros Rahi censured Lebanon’s political parties who have been calling for dialogue instead of electing the lengthily awaited president of the republic.


“They are hiding behind dialogue and consensus, while there is only one constitutional solution,” Rahi said, stressing that the sole solution is to elect a president in parliament.


“The president should be elected through voting rather than consensus, as per the Lebanese constitution,” Rahi said, deeming the presidential impasse “a farce” and calling on MPs to swiftly put an end to it.
