Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil announced Sunday that he will launch a new initiative regarding the stalled electoral law while noting that the constitution can be amended if there is consensus.
“There can be no political reform in Lebanon without an electoral law, and tomorrow we will launch a new initiative for the FPM in this regard,” Bassil said during the FPM’s second political convention.
“We are the sons of a cause before anything else. We are not a party but rather the movement of the president of the republic and the movement of the strong republic,” Bassil added.
He also noted that the country’s constitution “should not be rigid.”
“Any amendment can be introduced as long as it enjoys national consensus,” Bassil added.
