The Lebanese Kataeb party on Monday warned that glossing over failures does not serve the country that is suffering from a crisis of governance.
“The country is suffering from a crisis of governance that has become open to all possibilities which has led to exacerbated dangers in political, financial and security entitlements,” read a statement issued following the weekly meeting of the Kataeb's politburo, condemning the Cabinet stalemate for over a month.
The party demanded to stop politicizing security incidents in the country and to abide by legal and Constitutional procedural regulations which conform to the courts’ jurisdictions.
“The one dragging the country into sanctions and international embargo is not proclaiming the truth nor is he boldly challenging transgressions; but rather, he is controlling the decision-making role of war and peace and is venturing the Lebanese in his own ideological conflicts that surpass borders,” the statement slammed.
“Rampant illegal arms, to which the Lebanese are paying a heavy price on daily basis, are one of the facets of unlawfulness as it diminishes the stature of the State and the law,” it added, highlighting the need for Hezbollah to lay down its illegal arms.
The party urged transparency and evoked electronic voting (e-voting) in Parliamentary elections.
“The expansion of Burj Hammoud and Costa Brava landfills would lead to collective immigration as a result of economic, environmental and health dangers impacting hundreds of thousands of people,” the statement cautioned.
