Riachy in honor of Arafat Hijazi: We will fetch a new TV board council to alleviate personnel concerns


Information Minister, Melhem Riachy, pledged a great renaissance for the gov-run Tele Liban Station, through a new board of council and a new work mechanism.

Minister Riachy’s words came on Friday during a ceremony held by “Tele Liban”, on the second anniversary of the late acclaimed mediaman, Arafat Hijazi, at the TV Station’s building, attended by Information Ministry Director General, Dr Hassan Falha, the Minister’s Advisor Andre Qassas, Tele Liban Board Chairman, Talal Makdessi, and scores of media figures.

“We will fetch together a new board council for the TV Station which will cater to employees’ needs and eliminate all their concerns,” Riachy said, stressing the need for working one hand for a better TV situation.

Riachy eulogized the late Hijazi as a human and media figure, acclaimed for his objectivity and professionalism in carrying out his duties.

Dwelling on the forthcoming election law, Riachy anticipated an imminent birth of this law in cooperation amongst all the political spectrum in the country.
