Fri 12 Jan 2018 at 18:33 Politics

NNA - Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Boutros Rahi said Friday, at the end of his meeting with the President of the Republic Michel Aoun at the Baabda Palace, that "the controversy over the officer seniority decree is not necessary since it [Seniority Decree] bears no financial burden, contrary to the Promotions Decree".

Patriarch Rahi pointed out that the Minister of Defense is the one concerned to sign the seniority decree, stressing that such a problem can be swiftly resolved if goodwill exists.

The Patriarch stressed that the President is highly keen on the country's welfare and wellbeing, adding that a spat over the seniority decree is needless.

On the other hand, the Patriarch hoped that the forthcoming parliamentary elections would not be postponed.
