Hankache Stresses Ongoing Lebanese Protest As Parliament Confidence Session Approaches

In an interview with Annahar newspaper, he indicated that the party is coordinating with activists in the Lebanese protest which would determine the Kataeb lawmakers’ participation in the Parliament session to grant the elected government a vote of confidence.

“Had the protest been truly snuffed out, the ruling authority wouldn’t have been afraid of the Parliament confidence session,” he highlighted.

“This uprising started from within the Kataeb party ever since Samy Gemayel was elected as its president,” he hailed, pointing out that like any political party, theirs made mistakes in the past but have dusted itself off, and started all over again.

“As a father, my goal is to build a state of law befitting my children and the generation coming after us”

“We stood alone in this battle as an opposition force combating a system of shady deals, corruption and clientelism,” he said.

“We resigned from the Cabinet of Tamam Salam after we had realized that it is a government of passing deals,” he reminded.

The Kataeb lawmaker called on officials to resign so that citizens can elect representatives who meet their aspirations.

“People no longer trust this ruling authority, hence the need for early elections in order to restore it”

“I don’t believe that the new government will be endorsed by the Gulf Countries”

He stressed that the judicial authority is this country’s cornerstone, outlining the need for its independence from political bickering.

Hankache suggested imposing a fine on all those who funneled money abroad and to use the collected money in supporting underprivileged citizens.
