Mustaqbal: Aoun’s Statements Demonstrate Extent of his Spite
The Mustaqbal bloc condemned on Tuesday the statements of Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun and those of the members of his bloc, saying that they demonstrate “the extent of their spite”.
It said in a statement after its weekly meeting: “They unveil their vengeful intentions aimed at eliminating the other, which is an approach that has been created and perfected by Hizbullah in its political practices.”
“This spiteful approach that Aoun is proud of has cost the Lebanese and those whom he claims to defend massive losses,” it noted.
“It will once again incur dangerous repercussions on Lebanon should he continue with it,” it added.
On former Telecommunications Minister Charbel Nahhas’ statements on Monday that OGERO Telecom General Manager Abdul Monhem Youssef’s “days are numbered”, the Mustaqbal bloc said: “Such statements issued to a general manager who is no longer under Nahhas’ authority and before the completion of the government policy statement are the epitome of spite.”
“We had warned of such practices the minute the new government was revealed,” it said.
“A former minister does not have the right to issue judgments against any employee, especially since he no longer answers to him,” the statement noted.
“We call on President Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister Najib Miqati to take control of the situation seeing as they safeguard the constitution and uphold the law,” it added.
“Former Prime Minister Saad Hariri and the Mustaqbal Movement’s achievements and former Premier Rafik Hariri’s legacy are too deep-rooted in Lebanon to be pulled out by sick minds,” it stressed.
Addressing Friday’s unrest in Tripoli, it condemned the clashes “that are aimed at tarnishing the city’s image and harming its stability.”
It therefore demanded that Tripoli become a weapons-free city, praising the state’s efforts in containing the situation.
