Kataeb's Deputy-President Salim Sayegh criticized Wednesday the state’s suppression of Lebanese people while the Cabinet poorly secures vote of confidence.
“MPs and ministers sneaked in to yesterday’s vote of confidence session, while others spent the night inside the building the previous night like thieves,” Sayegh told Free TV channel, pointing out to the lack of quorum at the session’s start.
He described it with a democratic charade which proves lack of self-confidence.
“Popular pressure is the only solution for achieving change”
The Kataeb official called for shortening the Parliament’s mandate and holding early parliamentary elections which would turn the table and result in a restored trust in the ruling authority.
He considered that giving confidence by 63 votes when there are 128 legislators uncovers an existential economic crisis rocking the country.
He necessitated articulating an unexhausted political statement that would appease foreign donors in their support for Lebanon.
