Lebanon's Education Minister Elias Bou Saab decided Saturday to issue passing certificates to thousands of students who took official exams, after efforts failed to convince teachers to back down on their boycott of correcting the tests.Minutes before Bou Saab's news conference, the Union Coordination Committee, which represents civil servants and teachers, said it remained adamant on boycotting until the salary scale draft law was approved by Parliament.Earlier this week, Bou Saab postponed issuing the certificates at the request of the UCC in order to pave the way for more efforts to reach a solution to the standoff.Bou Saab said the victory belonged to political differences.
