President Michel Sleiman said Tuesday that he was happily waiting for his term to end, adding that he was not actively looking to extend his mandate.Earlier Sleiman ordered staff at security and inspection agencies to ensure optimal performance particularly toward the end of his term of office.While the president's term expires on May 25, there are mounting fears that the country will plunge into a presidential vacuum after the deadline passes, as Parliament has failed to elect a president during three sessions held so far.
