MP Zaid Aswad told OTV television on Monday that the protests against power cuts seek to “tarnish the image” of the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM), led by MP Michel Aoun, and “achieve political gains.”

He said that these protests will “continue until the day of parliamentary elections in 2013.”

Aswad added: “We will take to the streets in the face of those who are pretending to protest against electricity cuts.”
