Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Sunday said it is the responsibility of all political parties to make a change in Lebanon, calling on local factions to stop trading blame over corruption.
"Enough selfishness and populism. The solution and the plan of action are clear and this government will work to boost the economy," Hariri told well-wishers who visited him at the Center House following his return from Paris where he underwent a heart procedure last week.
"This is the logic that we must adopt, and we must realize that the challenges surrounding us are great and harsh," he added.
“The country is facing many difficulties and this requires serious work."
Hariri urged political forces to put their own interests aside and seek the welfare of the country and the people, adding that futile debates and bickering will lead nowhere.
“There is no political party in Lebanon that doesn’t have corrupt people in its ranks. Even if there are corrupt people in the Future Movement, then let them be prosecuted," he stated, stressing that the judiciary is at the heart of the fight against corruption.
