Bassil: Aoun's Tenure an Exceptional Opportunity for Lebanon
Free Patriotic Movement chief MP Jebran Bassil on Wednesday announced that President Michel Aoun's tenure “represents an exceptional opportunity for Lebanon.”
“Baseless media statements, articles and analyses are attributing to the FPM chief plans about the presidential race, including what was published today as part of a campaign whose source and objectives are well-known and whose aim is to undermine General Aoun's presidential tenure,” Bassil said in a statement issued by his press office.
“These campaigns are aimed at undermining and harming the presidential tenure, and therefore the president or the FPM and its head cannot be accused of standing behind them,” Bassil added.
Blaming the alleged “hostile campaigns” on “politicians and journalists whose political identity and intellectual bankruptcy are known,” the FPM chief vowed to continue supporting Aoun's presidency “for the sake of Lebanon and all Lebanese.”
“We believe that President Aoun's tenure represents an exceptional opportunity for Lebanon which will not be repeated,” Bassil went on to say.
