Rahi from Hasroun: We condemn refraining from electing new president.

NNA - Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Mar Beshara Boutros Rahi chaired on Friday a mass service celebrating the day of Saint Labi the Messenger of the Bcharre town of Hasroun. After his sermon, the prelate deplored the current situation in the country, hoping that politicians would lock horns to activate the paralyzed state institutions and boost ailing economy, instead of doing so only to sharpen rift and division. "We condemn and deplore their refraining from electing a new president of the republic," Rahi said. "It is everybody's responsibility, yet not equally," he added, explaining that some sides are contributing indirectly to the failure to choose a new state head. =============R.A.H.
