Thursday was the first day of courses at the Lebanese University branch in Tripoli after weeks of interrupted classes as a result of strikes and protests over the appointment of a Christian director.Qattar added that students have faith that Education Minister Elias Bou Saab will resolve the issue.Similar protests broke out when Tannous, another Christian, was appointed weeks before Yammine.A meeting chaired by Bou Saab Monday and attended by all political influential parties at the Tripoli LU branch reached an agreement under which Yammine would remain in her post.Khaled Sahyouni, also a student at the university, said the admission by the education minister that students were in the right indicated that the decisions made by the university president were biased.
