During a religious event, the representative of the Lebanese Islamic Resistance emphasized that the solution to the crisis requires first appointing the head of State, then forming the government, and with it approving an economic, financial, and social rescue plan.
Qassem assured that all this is currently difficult and complicated due to the US sanctions aimed at hitting the country’s structure to make people desperate and create chaos.
After the defeat in Parliament in 11 sessions, Qassem pointed out that electing the new president requires discussion, flexibility, and concessions, especially because no bloc or political force has the majority, and supported the call for dialogue and consensus.
On January 19, the Lebanese Parliament repeated the outline of the previous ten sessions.
So far, no representative of the Maronite Christian community has had the support of the majority to be the head of State.
