Rahi accuses political parties of negligence.

NNA - Maronite Patriarch Bechara Boutros Rahi accused on Monday the Lebanese political parties of negligence, "which causes the presidential vacancy and the obstruction of both Parliament and government work." "This negligence has caused chaos, corruption and impoverishment of the people," said the patriarch at a Mass held at the Missionary Nuns of The Holy Eucharist in Jbeil. The Maronite prelate called on the parliamentary blocs to resort to the voice of conscience, urging the Lebanese to take action so as to save the country. Rahi also criticized the attitude of foreign countries, which, in his words, continue to fuel the war in the Middle East. ========D.K.
