Harb: Absence of president threatens future of Lebanon

FEBRUARY 23, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) Telecommunications Minister Boutros Harb stressed “the importance of continuing the work of the cabinet yet without totally overlooking the main problem in the country.”

“We want to elect a President of the Republic but some are hindering this intentionally, which leads to the absence of Christians and the elimination of their fundamental role in the presidency,” he said.

“The absence of the President would be counterproductive in a way that threatens the future of the country,” Harb warned.
