FPM leader MP Michel Aoun after the weekly meeting of the Change and Reform bloc: The parliamentary minority is practicing obstruction in collusion with some of the executive authority, and we will not remain silent over this issue even if some people launched verbal attacks. almost 7 years

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun on Monday accused the opposition March 14 camp of “practicing obstruction” and slammed Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat over his rejection of an electoral law based on proportional representation.

“The parliamentary minority is practicing obstruction in collusion with some of the executive authority, and we will not remain silent over this issue even if some people launched verbal attacks,” Aoun told reporters after the weekly meeting of the Change and Reform parliamentary bloc in Rabiyeh.

“I support a proportional representation law and turning Lebanon into a single electorate and those who have another point of view must voice it in parliament,” Aoun said.

Criticizing Jumblat without mentioning him by name, Aoun said: “We are not obliged” to boost his political clout.

“We might forget about the thefts … but we will not tolerate the theft of our freedom,” Aoun added.

Commenting on the issue of the arms ship seized on Friday by the Lebanese navy, Aoun said “it is an attack against Lebanese territory and Lebanese sovereignty, as well as an attack on a brotherly state, Syria.”

According to media reports, the navy intercepted three containers of heavy machineguns, artillery shells, rockets, rocket launchers and other explosives destined for Syrian rebels on a ship originating in Libya.

“The policy of self-dissociation must be applied by both the government and the people and those trafficking arms are harming the ties with a brotherly state,” Aoun noted.

Addressing the ongoing financial row, the FPM leader said: “The ‘era of prostitution’ is over and we have embarked on forming a panel together with some MPs for the sake of financial accountability from 1993 until now.”

“The objective is improving administration and the financial situation, but some parliamentary committees have started obstructing the step,” he added.

“We are ready to go to court ... and should we be convicted in a single case, we pledge that we would quit politics. Where are your evidences?” he said, addressing his movement’s political rivals.

Asked about the imminent visit to Lebanon by Jeffrey Feltman, assistant U.S. secretary of state for near eastern affairs, Aoun said: “He is coming to support the corruption he used to support when he was (an ambassador) in Lebanon.”

financial accountability from 1993 until now

Poor karim commenting on wahabis, somebody must have filled his bird sized brains about wahabis and he uses it as an argument. Stupid are those who try to reason with the aounis, it will only rob them of there energy. And this other post from this sophia chick who is likely stuck in her 80's version of the generaaal, poor thing does not know that generaaaal sold his country, his honor, and his history. But even till todayshe does not pass through a tunnel without blasting her trarata horn. We share this world with fools...

Well said slash, I started typing but to tell you the truth I couldn't be bothered wasting time with this clown. I had to scroll up to the picture a few times as I thought I was reading a speech by the glorious hussouny for a second there, with words like 'brotherly state' and attacking Feltman like that. Populist policy maker without any substance, I'm the first ot attend his retirement party when he quits politics..

This guy is going to go down in history as the destroyer of Lebanon and his supporters will be known as the biggest traitors of Christianity for idolizing an idiot who split his sect for $$$

“and turning Lebanon into a single electorate and those who have another point of view must voice it in parliament"

This means every MP is elected by Huzb Allah, that way Aoun doesn't have to satisfy Christian voters where he keeps losing support and he can get elected over and over with Huzb Allah votes.

You are a bunch of immature kids in here commenting. what did any of them these politicians do any good for you or for what is called a nation built on religion and divided by religion. These leaders of yours that you love so much even to go as far as cursing other people's mother. I will tell u what i think : all these rotten politicians are war lords that love war and are the self-loving people on earth like most of us Lebanese, Lebanon emigrate us its youth to live far away to send money to feed our parents and support them. Lebanon has no infrastructure, is a collapsing nation of poverty, robberies, inflation and political bickering.

Akid not keep things as they are ... our responsibility is to make sure that these thugs are not elected again ... bas that wont happen cause there are soooo many ppl like in the country who think there is no other solution than to keep electing the same ppl ... u get lost if you don't get led like sheep. Keep doing the same thing the same way and keep wondering how come we are gettign the same result!
The solution is to start electing people who care about the people and Lebanon ... not just how to screw others and get richer, then blame everything on the others!
