BEIRUT: Lebanon’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammad Rashid Qabbani Wednesday warned of “difficult days” if President Michel Sleiman’s term ended without a successor.
“Lebanon will see difficult days if a new president is not elected,” Qabbani said at the end of a visit to Bahrain.
A third round of voting Wednesday failed to elect a new head of state due to lack of quorum. A fourth round is set for May 15.
Qabbani wrapped up his visit to Bahrain by meeting with King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa on the sidelines of the Dialogue of Civilizations Conference in Manama.
