Bassil: our bloc represents the Christians, not Suleiman

Share:

Energy Minister Gebran Bassil, said Sunday evening that the Change and Reform bloc ( which is headed by his father-in-law MP Michel Aoun ) “represents Christians while the President of the Republic is just a a referee.”

Bassil was criticizing the president for calling on Labor Minister Charbel Nahhas to resign if he does not sign the decree on transportation allowances.

“ The transportation allowance] is illegal and when it [is passed as a law] in parliament, then it would become normal for [Labor Minister Charbel Nahhas] to sign it,” he told OTV.

Nahhas has been refusing to sign the decree that had been negotiated between the Economic Committees and the General Workers Union during a cabinet session at Baabda presidential palace.

The labor issue is not about Christians only since it affects all the Lebanese workers.

On February 1 Prime Minister Najib Mikati said that he will no longer convene the cabinet unless “actions of obstruction” end.

The president of Lebanon according to the constitution has to be Christian Maronite. Like Suleiman Aoun is a Christian Maronite who has been trying hard to get to the Baabda palace but so far he has failed despite his alliance with the Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah, the only armed group in Lebanon.

  1. That is a stupid statement from Minister Bassils mouth when you say things like that you are undermining the whole Christian’s in general and the Maronites in particular, such statements should be condemned by all Christian leaders in Lebanon.

      In noting that Hezzys only ‘won’ 2 seats, if there had not been stupid ‘coaltions’ because of sects and religion walking out with them, there would not have been the year of no cabinet and more years of indecisive incapable government. If a ‘next election’ is allowed people, consider carefully what you vote for.
      Who wants to have a united country which functions? Are there really any progressive thinkers running for office??
      Are there any left in the country?

  9. I beg to differ… Nobody represents the Christians of Lebanon or even the entire Middle East Christians, or have you forgotten that they are leaving in hordes. Who wants to live amongst crazy zealots who believe in mythology. Excuse me but I’d rather believe in Santa Claus as he is peaceful and he brings gifts. What do you bring? destruction, pollution, mayhem and death.
