Education Minister Elias Bou Saab Friday gave protesting teachers one last chance to grade official examinations or risk losing a key negotiating card, with the issuance of certificates passing all students."But it is now clear that Parliament will not convene to legislate, at least not in the near future," the minister said.He also noted that several parties, including the Future Movement, Amal Movement, the Free Patriotic Movement and the Lebanese Forces, supported his decision to issue the certificates, saying his call for teachers to begin corrections came at the request of the Kataeb Party. Should teachers begin correcting exams Monday, the decision to issue the certificates would be canceled.
