Bassil Vows Campaign to 'Liberate Lebanon from Captivity'

W300

Free Patriotic Movement chief MP Jebran Bassil warned Tuesday that the FPM could stage a campaign to “liberate Lebanon” from what he called “political captivity.”

“It's unacceptable to blackmail the new presidential tenure with the need to form a government in order to form a crippled government and we have already made concessions regarding a lot of things,” Bassil said after the weekly meeting of the Strong Lebanon bloc.

“If necessary, we will not hesitate to stage a political, diplomatic and popular campaign to liberate Lebanon from the political captivity that we are witnessing,” the FPM chief added.

Stressing that the FPM “has not monopolized Christian representation,” Bassil underscored that “any other sect does not have the right to monopolize representation.”

“We are awaiting the formation of a government based on fair representation and on the will of the people that they reflected in the parliamentary elections,” the FPM chief went on to say.

And noting that the FPM is “paying the cost of the principle of partnership,” Bassil said the new government should be “productive and not selective.”

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri was tasked with forming a new government on May 24. His mission is being hampered by political wrangling over shares, especially over Christian and Druze representation.

and why are you concerned with other sects' representation? That is part of the PM designate charter and not yours.

But he had no problem holding the country captive and delaying government formation for 8 months back in 2010 ( If I recall correctly ) when his father-in-law ( Aoun ) insisted on making Bassil a minister.
