Michel Sulayman and the extension of his term

"To his credit, Suleiman refused an extension to his term and instead called for the election of a new president, which is what the Lebanese constitution prescribes."  Oh, no, Maya. He deserves no credit whatsoever.  By all accounts, Saudi Arabia pushed on his behalf for the extension of his term but Hizbullah made it clear that they won't even discuss the matter.  The man, to his credit, lobbied hard for an extension but failed miserably.
