which the ambassador informed His Holiness about the political and
electoral developments in the Middle East in general and Lebanon

saying that the latter has cause inter and intra confessional
sensitivities. He said that after the elections are over, the
new government should make the changing of this law one of its
priorities. His Holiness pointed out that Lebanon's sovereignty is
