Vatican Dispatches Envoy to Lebanon to Tackle Presidential Crisis

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

A Vatican envoy will reportedly visit Lebanon on Friday at the head of a Papal delegation, with an agenda focusing on the presidential vacuum.

Vatican's former Foreign Minister Monsignor Dominique Mamberti will underline during his meetings the importance of ending the presidential stalemate, local newspapers reported on Wednesday.

The delegation will also be briefed on the work of the Christian spiritual courts in Lebanon.

Media reports said recently that the Vatican is seeking to press forward the election of a new head of state amid the sharp rift among the political arch-foes over a consensual candidate.

Lebanon has been without a president since May last year when the term of Michel Suleiman ended without the election of a successor.

Ongoing disputes between the rival March 8 and 14 camps over a compromise candidate have thwarted the election.

Hizbullah's Loyalty to the Resistance and MP Michel Aoun's Change and Reform blocs have been boycotting the polls over the dispute.

They already know the psycho of the mareedman. I think they will try to play on his conscious.

This man is really mentally ill. This is a fact. He has severe neurasthenic crisis and is in need of psychiatric support.
We will see in the coming days more and more psycho problems.
Poor man and poor Lebanon...

Very true, Canada, if Aounis excommunicated, the Aouni will start to hate the Vatican and the Church, herself. Because patriotic Lebnese Christians who do not support Aoun for President have been called "tikfiri" and worse. Anything that comes. Eternal Aoun and what Aoun wants is vilified by the Aouni, even Lebanon herself. I had an Aouni tell me once " I must confess, I am not a Lebanese Nationalist, but an Aounist". Even in their minds the two are not the same. By manifestation over at least this past year, we can all see that an Aounist is not a Lebanese patriot at all.
They are just on the make to take Iranian money and the spoils that they eagerly await them if Aoun takes the Presidency. They wait in vain, God Willing!
