Kataeb Party Hails Mobilization against Taxes as Proof of People's Ability to Change

The Lebanese Kataeb party on Monday praised the people's mobilization against unfair taxes, deeming Sunday's protest as a proof of their ability to change whenever they have the will to do so.

"The Kataeb party calls on the political authority to seize this historical moment and embrace the people's dream to live in a civilized, sovereign, free and independent state where law and order prevail," read a statement issued following the weekly meeting of the Kataeb's politburo.

"The party promises to carry on the struggle until the political authority is convinced of the need to adopt a comprehensive reform road map, having the approval of a new electoral law, the endorsement of an ambitious budget, including a salary scale that is financed by ending corruption and waste."

The politburo warned of the "disastrous options" that will emerge due to the lingering procrastination over the electoral law issue, renewing its call for a voting system that secures fair representation and preserves political pluralism within each community.
