Jebran Bassil demands key change in Lebanon’s political life

Beirut, Jan 3 (Prensa Latina) The head of the Christian party Free Patriotic Current (CPL), Jebran Bassil, demanded a key change in the life and the political system in Lebanon, in declarations quoted today by the Naharnet site.

Urgent, Bassil said, “a transformation of the political, economic and financial system” and according to him, the current state is a failure under sectarian and confessional conditions, “we prefer a secular state”.

“We want a civil and secular state, a strong Army, a productive economy and an independent foreign policy,” he stressed.

Partition and federalism will not solve the disputes between foreign policy and finances, referring to an intermittent talks between the Government and the International Monetary Fund for a boycott to the sessions of the Executive.

The Cabinet stoppage is being led by the Amal movement and Hizbulah parties, whose ministers are refusing to participate in the meetings in demand of the replacement of the main judge in the investigation for the explosion in the Beirut port in August 2020, Tarek Bitar, whom both factions accuse of being biased and politicized.

Bassil commented on the Memorandum of Understanding between the Islamic Resistance (Hizbulah) and CPL, which in his opinion breaches what was sealed in 2006 because of its reluctance to remain within the state order.
