The seat of the Maronite patriarchate of Bkirki is expected to witness a “demonstration” by March 14 lawmakers aimed at voicing their condemnation of the ongoing vacuum in the presidency, reported the daily al-Mustaqbal on Sunday.

The meeting at Bkirki will be crowned with a speech by Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi during which he will urge officials to elect a new head of state, parliamentary sources from the Mustaqbal bloc told the daily.

Representatives of the various participating parliamentary blocs will also deliver speeches on the occasion.

Al-Rahi had on Saturday reiterated his condemnation of the lawmakers' ongoing failure to elect a president.

“A body without a head will lead to its death,” he warned during a visit of the district of Batroun.

“We cannot accept the fragmentation of our nation as a result of the absence of a head of state,” he added.

He said it is “shameful” that a year has passed since the presidential vacuum began.

Lebanon has been without a president since May 24, 2014 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 polls.

Did you see him yesterday shoting and yelling? He could hardly contain his neurasthenic crisis.
Worse than Judas, Neron, and Hitler.

Caporal believes he is the genius, the extraordinary, above De Gaulle, Eisenhower, and Churchill. Better than Napoleon (he loves when people call him NapoleAoun), the new St Paul (on the road to Damascus), he just cannot understand why people are not begging him to be the president and the savior (some people who visit him kneel in front of him and touch his pants asking for a benediction! Or kiss his hand.... ).
