Mustaqbal to Attend Tuesday Session, Urges Respect for 'Peaceful Expression'
Al-Mustaqbal parliamentary bloc announced Monday that it will take part in a Tuesday parliamentary session to debate Cabinet’s policy statement and vote on confidence in the new government.
The bloc, however, said that it will not grant confidence to Hassan Diab’s government because “it has nothing to do with what the Lebanese are demanding.”
“Its policy statement, the same as the budget it adopted, are copied from previous statements and are no longer valid for the current period not for the social, financial, monetary and economic crisis that Lebanon is facing,” the bloc added in a statement issued after a meeting chaired by ex-PM Saad Hariri.
The bloc also called for “respecting citizens’ right to peaceful expression under the law,” as it urged against “attacks on public and private property.”
