Lebanese University decided Saturday to postpone all exams until June 9, in a bid to pressure the government to meet the demands of the educational institution and its teachers.The professors had asked the government to assign deans to the university council to replace the acting deans who have been in the post since 2004 .The university argues that the governments' failure to appoint deans has led the council to lose much of its power, placing LU under the rule of its president and the education minister.
