Derian upon New Hijri Year: We back Hariri as he seeks consent and balance
Grand Mufti, Sheikh Abdullatif Derian, on Monday delivered a speech upon the New Hijri Year, where he voiced support for the efforts exerted by Prime Minister-designate, Saad Hariri, to form the new government in a way that ensures consent and balance.
"We support Hariri as he is endeavoring away from polarization, only for the sake on consent, balance, and national development," Derian said in his address.
The Mufti reminded that Lebanon enjoyed a National Agreement Pact as well as a Constitution, deploring however the crisis jolting the country, not only regarding the failure to form the government, but also considering the crises on the economic and social levels, in addition to the sharp political rift on the home scene.
