Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun accused on Tuesday the Mustaqbal bloc of seeking to obstruct the state’s functioning, labeling its members as “liars and hypocrites.”

He said after the Change and Reform bloc’s weekly meeting: “They all make personal attacks. This is defamation and not tackling the problem.”

“Those who are performing their duties properly should challenge us otherwise they should shut up,” he added.

Addressing the electricity draft law, he noted: “No draft law ever presented was subject to auditing … but this law is being completely audited by the Finance Ministry and it will later be subject to the Audit Bureau.”

Parliament and the government will also monitor its implementation, he stressed.

Aoun said: “We are constantly challenging proposals because they are adopting a spiteful approach and according to the constitution, we will not allow a single one of the minister’s privileges to be targeted.”

“I don’t represent the entire parliament. I am forced to voice my objections because I am defending my rights,” he continued.

“The minister is responsible for his ministry and no one has control over him, except for the Audit Bureau, parliament, and government, unless there is a mafia organization involved,” the FPM leader noted.

“Everyone wants electricity, but a parliamentary bloc is sabotaging the draft law,” he stressed.

“We will see on Thursday how the dispute over electricity file will be resolved. Our allies won’t obstruct it and we will reject issues that would be imposed on parliament,” he declared.

If the Mustaqbal bloc truly opposes the draft law, then why hasn’t it presented a document objecting to it? Aoun asked.

Parliament is expected to convene on Thursday in order to tackle the electricity draft law and other pending issues.

Addressing Palestinian efforts to have the United Nations recognize the Palestinian state, the MP remarked: “The countries boasting about respecting human rights will be put to a test regarding the recognition of what is left of Palestine.”

On the death of two suspects in Estonian kidnapping, he wondered: “Is this an accomplishment for the Intelligence Bureau? An achievement lies in uncovering the kidnappers’ network and not eliminating it.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the Internal Security Forces and Intelligence Bureau succeeded in killing two suspects in the abduction after they got embroiled in a clash with them in a security operation in the Bekaa region.

Aoun Quotes:
"They all make personal attacks"
"Mustaqbal members are liars and hypocrites"
"Shut up"

In one speech he accuses everyone of the same thing he does, it is incredible to accuse anyone in Lebanon as obstructing the work of the cabinet. Aoun in his cronies mastered that during previous cabinets with Sanioura and Harriri, I guess what's good for the goose isn't good for the gander. It has always been difficult to follow this man's logic but now it is becoming impossible.

Why are Zionist American political leaders running for president being allowed to advertise on the Naharnet English? Does Nahanet want to be known as the voice of the SLA? What percent of its readers are Zionist terrorists? This is a new LOW, which makes the little Website an enemy propaganda.

No one has killed Lebanese and destroyed Lebanon more than you did with your evil wars and allies with the terrorist group of Hezboshaitan helping the Zionist to realize their radical dream

Someone please admit this man back to Deir El saleeb...as m.c. has pointed out he has committed countless hypocrisies in this speech alone.

As for the suspects...can he please uncover the network that Fares Karam worked for? Would he rather the ISF lose its members in order to catch these guys alive? I would much rather have dead terrorists than alive. What a retard...

Siding with an oppressor is expected from those who sold their soul to gain power. The lebanese who approve of Aoun's stands have no moral clarity and a dead conscience. They are hopeless.

What a joke the little idiot general is. Sabotaging state functioning? What did Aoun and Huzb Allah do when they froze the government for a long time and then brought down another government? This is democracy general get used to it.

كل أناء بما فيه ينضح
ان الاساءة الى جماعة معينة يعني الاساءة الى قسم كبير من اللبنانيين.
يجب على عون ان لا ينسى الاف القتلى الذي سقطت بسبب مواقفه العنيدة و حربه مع السوريين و القوات اللبنانية و غيرهم التي انتهت بهروبه من لبنان.
هل كان يحمي جنوده العزل من الذبح على الحواجز؟
هل كان يحمي جنوده من دهس الدبابات السورية لهم بينما كان هو قابع في غرف السفارة الفرنسية منتظرا الفرج ؟
اين ذهبت دمائهم؟ او ربما لا يوجد شهداء الا شهداء حزب الله؟ بنظره؟
