NNA – Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Minister, Gebran Bassil, said on Tuesday following Change and Reform bloc meeting that they did not adhere to any election law and “no one can hinder the election path that we have chosen.”
“We did not reject proportionality, and the nation is for all. We bridged consensus amongst Lebanese and we combated for this cause,” Minister Bassil said.
He added that 1960 law had another form for extension that we categorically reject, and there is no vacuum because constitution rejects it.
“The only guarantee is the adoption of a new poll law.”
He pointed out that fair representation prevents a war amongst Lebanese people.
In the same context, Bassil assured that the parliamentary vacuum and the adoption of the 1960 law were two outlaw and out-of-question choices.
According to him, his party “defended” the rehabilitation law.
Bassil also called on MPs to start reviewing the so-called Orthodox law at Parliament.
