Maronite Patriach, Cardinal Mar Bechara Boutros Al Rahi, held his meetings on Friday in the summer Patriarchal residence in Diman.
The Maronite Patriarch first met with "Strong Republic" Parliamentary bloc member, Joseph Isaac. The pair discussed the economic situation, the delay in forming the government, as well as the general situation in Bcharre.
The MP said that the meeting had also been an opportunity to brief the Maronite Patriarch on the atmosphere of the meeting that was held by the "Strong Republic" Parliamentary Bloc yesterday with the economic council, which mainly focused on the country's economic situation and the importance of forming a government as soon as possible.
Isaac also briefed Rahi on the LF efforts speeding up the formation of the government.
"Unfortunately there are many political teams that aren't exerting the same efforts and the Strong Republic Parliamentary bloc has been exerting. We hope that the cabinet will be swiftly formed on condition that we do not give up on the right which the citizens have given us to represent them," Isaac said.
On another level, Rahi welcomed on Friday German Ambassador to Lebanon, Martin Huth, with whom he tackled the general situation at the local scene, as well as the projects that are being implemented by the German Government in Lebanon.
