Rahi criticizes political situation in Lebanon

"The political crisis that paralyzes life in Lebanon, causing severe problems at the economic, financial and daily-living levels, is the result of personal, factional and sectarian interests and external loyalties," Rahi said during Sunday's Mass service in Bkirki today.

Rahi blamed the Lebanese officials for the continued delay in forming the government.

"Nothing justifies the cabinet delay at the expense of citizens' lively interests, which contradicts with the general Constitutional standards and with the Lebanese Constitution's content," he went on.

Finally, the Patriarch appealed to the Lebanese officials to show responsibility in carrying out the necessary reforms and putting an end to wasting public funds.
