Aoun: We Might Call for Negative Stances because We Won’t Give up
Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun has said that hatefulness is embodied in al-Mustaqbal movement and slammed parties who supported the electricity plan and then backed off from it.
At a dinner organized by the FPM, Aoun accused some parties of obstructing the movement’s reforms.
“We are determined not to back off from our reform plan, not just that of electricity but of the tax system, maritime property and water projects,” he said.
Aoun defended his son-in-law Energy Minister Jebran Bassil against accusations that he was seeking to siphon off money from $1.2 billion funds aimed at generating 700 Megawatts of electricity if the power plan is approved by the cabinet.
“We are at important crossroads … We hold onto our reform and security approach … We might call for negative stances because we won’t give up.”
The FPM works for a stable and prosperous nation and does not serve another state or embassy, Aoun said.
Lebanon will remain stable, he said, adding that Syria will also remain stable.
“If the people are united, no one can vanquish them,” he stated.
