Kataeb MP Elias Hankache on Thursday slammed the ruling authority's failure to manage the lingering waste crisis, saying that the government is once again forcing people to choose between what is bad and worse.
“The state has been making people choose between the bad and worse over the past three years,” Hankache said in an interview on Voice of Lebanon radio station. "It all started with the genius plan to establish landfills in Metn and the Costa Brava."
The lawmaker blasted the authority's empty promises to set out sustainable solutions, while it is today forcing the expansion of the existing landfills.
“How can we trust any new promises made by a government that is nothing but an extension of the previous one?"
