Minister of Culture, Ghattas Khoury, said on Sunday that the upcoming parliamentary elections would take place on their scheduled date, asserting that "no one has the power to stop them from happening."
"All political counterparts have the will to hold the legislative elections, and it is in no political party's interest to adjourn said elections," Khoury stressed during an interview.
Commenting on the adoption of the biometric card during the elections, Khoury deemed that political counterparts would make a compromise regarding this issue in order to hold the elections on time.
As for the controversy over the seniority officers' decree, Khoury considered that this matter would be resolved soon.
