Speaker Nabih Berri issued a statement on Friday that Maronite Patriarch Nasrallah Boutros Sfeir’s Thursday address in which he said that sectarianism should be abolished as a whole and not just political sectarianism , is a starting point to work toward having all the Lebanese agree on the matter.
“Let us form the national committee to abolish political sectarianism to suggest how sectarianism can be abolished completely ,” Berri added.
“There should be no obstacles in abolishing political sectarianism and sectarianism in Lebanon as a whole”, he said
Earlier today, Berri informed Prime Minister Saad Hariri of his consensus approval on Beirut municipal elections “because it is the heart of the nation.”
