Beirut  NNA - Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Boutros Rahi urged the legislative, executive, administrative and judicial authorities to resolve any law imperfections, particularly in the context of the long-awaited wage grid law. 

Rahi, whose words came during Sunday's Mass service in Bkirki, added that the Lebanese officials are committed to serving citizens in accordance with the Constitution and stipulated laws. 

"It is unacceptable that people resort to strikes and demonstrations in order to obtain their legitimate rights," said Rahi, referring to the recently approved salary scale coupled with tax increases. 

The Patriarch refused any increase on tuition fees in private schools, calling on officials to listen to complaints from the general secretariat of Catholic schools and the union of private schools.
