Jumblat Hits Out at Hariri over ex-PM's Iqlim al-Kharroub Speech
Progressive Socialist Party chief MP Walid Jumblat on Sunday accused Mustaqbal Movement leader ex-PM Saad Hariri of attempting to “exclude and eliminate” the PSP from the Chouf region of Iqlim al-Kharroub in light of the former premier's latest speech at an iftar banquet in the area.
“Some should not have excluded all of the PSP's historic achievements in Iqlim al-Kharroub, seeing as acknowledging others enhances partnership,” said Jumblat in remarks to his party's al-Anbaa newspaper.
“Developmental projects in Iqlim al-Kharroub have always been and will always be the subject of close and vigorous followup by us,” Jumblat added.
“We will not play down the achievements of others but we will not disregard our own achievements,” he stressed.
“It's about time we stopped this incessant whirlpool of exclusion and elimination attempts,” the PSP leader went on to say.
