NNA - Minister of Culture Ghattas Khoury said Sunday that the upcoming parliamentary elections would take place at their scheduled date, asserting that "no one enjoyed the power to stop them from happening."

"All the political counterparts have the will to hold the legislative elections, and it is in no political party's interest to adjourn said elections," Khoury stressed during an interview to "Lebanon Radio" Station.

Commenting on the adoption of the biometric card during the elections, Khoury deemed that political counterparts would make a compromise regarding this issue in order to hold the elections right on time.
