BEIRUT: Solidere inaugurated Saturday the “Nassib Lahoud Square” in Downtown Beirut in honor of the late politician, the real-estate giant said in a statement.

The inauguration ceremony of the square, located at the southern entrance of the Beirut Souks, was attended by officials, ambassadors and relatives of Lahoud.

Raphael Sabbagha, a member of Solidere’s board of directors, said the company named the square after Lahoud in honor of the former MP and presidential candidate and to keep his memory alive.

“We hope we have participated in our own way in preserving the memory of Lahoud and encouraged future generations to follow his path,” said Sabbagha during the ceremony, according to the statement.

Lahoud, who hailed from the Metn town of Baabdat, passed away on Feb. 3, 2012, aged 68, after being diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago.

He held various political posts throughout a distinguished political career.
