"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Bkirki Denies Proposing Election of President for Transitional Period- Naharnet

Maronite Bishop Samir Mazloum denied on Tuesday reports that Bkirki has proposed the election of a president for a transitional period to resolve the country's political crisis.
“Bkirki is not the source of a proposal to elect a head of state for a two-year period,” Mazloum told As Safir newspaper published on Tuesday.
Former Speaker Hussein Husseini made the proposal to elect a president for one year, he said.
“But Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi has not expressed his opinion on the matter because it is up to lawmakers firstly to take a decision on such issues,” said Mazloum.
“What concerns Bkirki is the swift election of a president to come out of the vacuum,” he told As Safir.
