Lebanon's Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdel Latif Derian warned on Tuesday of chaos should a president not be chosen soon, Arabi21 reported. In a message issued on the occasion of the start of the holy month of Ramadan, Derian said: "Oh, Lebanese politicians, it is enough to waste time. We reached the last stage before the complete collapse. Unite your vision regarding the fate of the country." He added: "Choose a president and form a government, or chaos, which started to appear, will prevail and the citizens will pay the price." Since September, parliament has failed to choose a president 11 times, while a caretaker government has been running the country since May last year.
