British Interior Minister Calls for Electoral Law Acceptable to all Parties


British Interior Minister, Amber Rudd stressed Lebanon's need to stage the parliamentary elections on time, on the basis of an electoral law that meets approval of all Lebanese parties, the National News Agency reported on Friday.

“It is encouraging to conduct the parliamentary elections this year in Lebanon. We hope the efforts succeed at finding a new electoral law acceptable to all sides,” Rudd said in a message to her Lebanese counterpart Nouhad al-Mashnouq.

She stressed the UK's “commitment to security and stability in Lebanon and its continued support of the Internal Security Forces and their endeavors to confront challenges.”

Rudd thanked Mashnouq, the cabinet and the airport security chief Brig. Gen. George Doumit for improving the security level at Beirut's airport.

“Britain will continue to support your efforts to address the security challenges at the airport and ensure the aviation's safety,” she concluded.
