Al-Rahi lauds expat voting process, urges heavy turnout

Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi on Sunday lauded “the role of the government, the concerned ministers and the employees of embassies and diplomatic missions for the proper management” of expat parliamentary polls, which got underway in the morning in dozens of countries.

“We have seen the Lebanese women and men heading to polling stations with pain, anger and hope showing on their faces,” al-Rahi added in his Sunday Mass sermon.

“Ahead of the polling day in Lebanon, we call on all citizens to turn out heavily in the elections because this is the moment of change, or else they will regret it later,” the patriarch added.
