Prime Minister Tammam Salam said Thursday he hoped the presidential void would not last long and urged various political groups to shoulder responsibility to elect a new head of state as soon as possible.Salam spoke at the beginning of a Cabinet session he chaired at the Grand Serail that finalized several appointments, hours after Parliament failed to hold a session to elect a president for lack of the required two-thirds quorum. Ministers will meet again Friday at the Baabda presidential palace. Friday's session will be the last one to be chaired by President Michel Sleiman, whose mandate expires Sunday.
